In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, an island of 20 kilometers works together to make something beautiful out of nothing: a Carnival. During the month leading up to the festivities we’ll discover the struggles needed to achieve it through a person that coined a word: Tchinda. It's Mindelo, in the island of Sâo Vicente (Cape Verde), an unknown side of Africa that few could have imagined.
