The documentary shows the Caribbean is more than a melting pot. It is a magical womb where different types of cultures nurture which we don’t really find anywhere else in the world. Carribean’s Indian link is quite old and it is a great news for Indian Diaspora living there, to get the opportunity to watch it on the big screen. It tells about the Trinidadian of African descent who can become the master of Indian Dance, as Tassa rhymes with Gwo Ka on the night of Diwali.
