Of course, Belafonte and calypso added to this musical direction.
Then, the Kingston Trio came on the scene and that settled it for me!
Starting from the KT, I "discovered" (for myself) Bud & Travis (Mexican/Latin music for a Chinese?!, that is a huge statement!). Listen carefully to their music, vocalizations and exquisite guitar work; there were none that compared in that arena IMHO.
There are a few others but they may be out of the 50's era.
