Calypso Dreams at Harbourfront’s Island Soul Festival

30 Jul

People people people!!! how are you all? : D

I saw this movie when it premiered in Toronto last year and it was simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!! it truly captures the essence of calypso and documents our greatness. The movie gives us a behind the scene look and candid chat with the giants of Calypso. I would say more but I would give it all away.

Simply put DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!! it is even free :\ dont ask me why? I paid my good money last time to see it and it was well worth it. Buh ah goin an see it again.
