Saturday January 28 medium and large steelbands competed in the semi-final round of the National Panorama competition. The semi-final round is mammoth. It starts at 9:00 AM and this year we counted it as luck that the first large band rolled their pans onto the stage at dusk, just as the sun went down. There was still natural light on the Queens Park Savannah stage.
I missed six posts in the Blogging de Carnival series this year. I’ll share them with you as we wind down Black History Month and the wonderful carnival month of February. Look for more updates on carnivals and culture and the more of these images on Facebook and Instagram. I hope as much as I enjoy capturing the beauty and magic of the people and rituals in these images you do.
