The Caribbean Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Robert Young’s band Vulgar Fraction’s presentation for 2017 is called the Caribbean Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

The models were people Robert selected from the crowd. He dressed them and they began twirling. The band has a loose structure, but I was surprised by how I was warming to it. The costumes, the concept, the possibility of playing mas with the band.

The mas camp is based at Propaganda Space, 24 Erthig Road in Belmont. Check them out there or virtually via their Facebook page.

See you (maybe) on the road.

Ancestral Memory Mas

Ancestral Memory Mas is a new band from Jenissa Sullivan. She wants to bring back mas with meaning for Carnival 2017. I got to talk to her about her vision for her band.

The band is launching September 1st with the theme In Search of Bliss, stay tuned to this blog for details.

Update: The band launch on the 1st has been re-scheduled. I’ll let you know the new date as soon as I have it. Peep Jenissa’s Insta for Costume details until the launch.
