Calypso Rose: The Lioness of the Jungle

Calypso Rose is an ambassador of Caribbean music, a living legend, a charismatic character, the uncontested diva of Calypso Music, and often compared to great black singers such as Aretha Franklin, Myriam Makeba and Cesaria Evora.

This road movie is not only about memory, the exchange and discovery of world cultures but also the journey of a militant and authentic woman, an Afro-Caribbean soul, an exemplary artist, far from the glitz and glitter. Moving along the thread that links her universe with the world, we experience the dreams and disappointments of this amazing female artist. It is by carrying us with her on this intimate journey that Calypso Rose transmits to us the pulse of her life.
