A documentary directed and produced / by Carlos Zuniga
The Calypso limonense is an Afro-descendant cultural expression that stands out for its narrative of popular events sung in an aesthetic of particular humor, for its versatile musicians, its Caribbean environment, its cheerful rhythms and melodies of Afro-Antillean roots. This expression has served over the past 90 years to draw stories in songs that portray a unique way of dealing with the changes that the Caribbean region of Costa Rica has experienced.
Currently the Calypso limonense narrative faces a series of threats.
