Calypso @ Dirty Jim's

Featuring the last of the great calypsonians, bringing them all together to sing such classics as “Rum & Coca Cola,” “Jean and Dinah,” and “Shame and Scandal in the Family,” to name a few, the film provides an opportunity to recapture the sound of classic calypso in all of its splendor. Sparrow, Calypso Rose, Terror, Bomber, Superior and Relator are gathered around Syl Dopson’s orchestra on the scene at Dirty Jim’s Club, specially recreated for the film. Lively and touching, filled in the sidelines of Trinidad Carnival, this musical documentary provides a sensitive and originalrendering of calypso, its culture and the legendary singers of the Dirty Jim’s. Part of the CaribbeanTales Collection.
