Spotlighting the pulsating history of islands such as Barbados, Jamaica, St. Vincent, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago – ‘Spirits Of The Caribbean’ brings to light, the many Caribbean people united through the Spirit of Carnival around the world. Drawing inspiration from famed mythical characters - Barbados – Steel Donkey,Jamaican - Golden Table, St. Vincent – Garifuna, Guyana’s – Jaguar, and the Trinidadian - Soucouyant,Spirits Of The Caribbean transforms treasured folklore into visual realities. While each character individually illustrates a unique island tale, as a band they depict the very essence of Caribbean diversity.
Speaking candidly on the creative concept behind Spirits Of The Caribbean band leader, Susan Grogan shares, “Masqueraders are in for quite an experience, Spirits of the Caribbean meshes our heritage with the most unique elements of sophistication.... much like our culture, the costumes are flavorful, multi-dimensional, and seductive.”
On Sunday May 22nd, 2011 the highly anticipated band, will undoubtedly redefine traditional band launch standards. Alongside the featured (5 section) Mas collection, party goers will be privy to exclusive performances by Edwin Yearwood (Barbados), Kerian Piper (St. Lucia), Slama Cutter (Toronto/Trinidad), and surprise guests yet to be mentioned.
