Calypso Rose: Lioness of the Jungle (Harlem Library Cinema Series )

Share

June 13, 2012
National Black Programming Consortium

Calypso Rose is an ambassador of Caribbean music, a living legend, a charismatic character, the uncontested diva of Calypso Music. Paris, New York, Trinidad, Tobago, back to Africa, in each place, we learn a little more about the many faces and facets of her life. It is a film not only about memory, the exchange and discovery of world cultures, but also about the journey of a militant and authentic woman, an Afro-Caribbean soul, an exemplary artist, far from the glitz and glitter, at the dawn of her life.
