Costa Rica's 100-year-old "calypso king," Walter Gavitt Ferguson, used to record his songs live onto blank cassettes, selling each one-off tape without making himself a copy. Now Swiss music fan Niels Werdenberg runs a "tape hunt" to track down the sold tapes — and preserve a beloved piece of Costa Rica's cultural heritage.
