Film Notes - Calypso Dreams, director Geoffrey Dunn and Michael Horne, 85min 2004.

Calypso Dreams chronicles the art and artists of Kaiso or Calypso. In Trinidad and Tobago, Calypsonians are the voice of the people following in the griot tradition of West Africa and give a unique voice to the dispossessed. The struggles during slavery, colonialism, independence and beyond were given extra power by the observation, humour, biting satire and the song of the Calypso. Featuring Kaiso stars like the Lord Kitchener, Calypso Rose, Duke, Mighty Sparrow, Singing Sandra, Black Stalin, Sugar Aloes, David Rudder and more with narration from Chalkdust.
