    SYNOPSIS:

    This film recaptures the glory of classic calypso in all of its splendour. 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 original rendering of calypso, its culture and the legendary singers at Dirty Jim’s.
