Crossing Over

Trinidadian Calypso musician, Lancelot Layne, visits Ghana in Africa, the land of his ancestors, for the first time. Together with Ghanaian Highlife musician, Koo Nimo, they explore the roots of Highlife. The rhythms of the people in the villages, of Koo Nimo and his musicians, the music, the markets, the brass bands and masqueraders, set up reverberations for the Trinidadian that reach far back into his New World experience.
When Koo Nimo visits Lance in Trinidad to experience the music of Trinidad and particularly the Calypso, he meets the legendary Lord Kitchener, Grandmaster of the Calypso, sings and plays with the world’s greatest steelpan player, is welcomed by practitioners of the ancient West African Orisha religion and explores the influence of East Indian music on modern Trinidadian music. Directed by Trinidadian, Christopher Laird, and Ghanaian, Nii Bampoe Addo, this unique South-South co-production, Crossing Over, begins to bridge a gap of history between Africa and the Caribbean which has never before been explored.
