How we will use collected funds

We would like to print a thousand copies in English and Spanish. The cost of printing represents 30% of the book's production. The total cost goes beyond 40 thousand dollars due to research, translation, editing and graphic design expenses. With your contribution we hope to reach the goal to print this second edition and thus have the opportunity to take Lord Cobra's story to all art, culture and calypso music lovers. You will also help new generations to have at their reach this valued cultural treasure. With the book's distribution, we hope to be able to help other talented writers who haven't had the opportunity to publish their history. We will do orientation work to help them publish their literary pieces. We will also boost our culture and bring back to our time the fascinating music of calypso. Reward names come from Lord Cobra's songs.

Project history

Lord Cobra was a popular calypso singer that marked the golden age of Panamanian national bands. One of the best of its kind, Cobra was recognized for his talent both in his native land as well as abroad. He captivated his audience and fans with his irresistible dance rhythm. His pleasant melody was always in great demand both national and internationally. He was an extraordinary troubadour who often displayed his characteristic touch of humor to his lyrics, making it a fundamental part of the Panamanian calypso. His daughter, Xiomara Berry, brings back his story through her book named: "Lord Cobra The King of Calypso", reminding us of his musical trajectory and a fundamental part of his life that many of his fans and lovers of calypso music do not know.
