Calypso at Dirty Jim's| 54mins
Director: Pascale Obolo | Producer: Dynamo Production & Maturity Music
Focus Years: 2005 | Country: France
Calypso is the soul of Trinidad. For three centuries, Calypsonians have been the folk singers of the Creole world, the griots of the Caribbean. Outstanding improvisers, poets allergic to all censorship, Calypsonians have told the story of slavery, freedom, world wars, independence and emigration, without forgetting love with a heavy dose of humour and sex. Lord Pretender, Lord Beginner and Lord Kitchener, many of the legendary Lords of Calypso have left us recently. But in Trinidad, some masters still exist such as Mighty Sparrow, Mighty Terror, Bomber, Calypso Rose, Lord Superior. In "Calypso at Dirty Jim’s", the last great stars are still shining but a new generation is taking over: soca singers and rapso poets. "Calypso at Dirty Jim’s" is the coming together of this generation of artists.
