Synopsis

Salt of the Earth explores one facet of Trinidad's culture through this ancient music tradition called Parang and the ones who make it survive, the parrenderos and Holly Betaudier, a fantastic television producer and presenter.
 
The music sets the pace for the discovery of the island's beauty, its history, its landscapes and its people. This is a journey into Trinidad's past to better understand how an English speaking country has managed to keep and continue a Spanish tradition imported hundreds of years ago.
