For many people, the words carnival
and soca are synonymous with fetes
and large concerts that culminate with
a huge street party full of revelry and
mas. However, John Afoon, co-ordi-
nator and creator of Live at the Hyatt
believes in giving the people of T&T
a more intimate and theatrical expe-
rience of carnival that brings people
closer to the history of the greatest
show on earth.
"We decided not to do another all-
inclusive fete. We wanted to do a show
where we could present a fantastic the-
atrical performance that told a story
in a different way," Afoon told the T&T
Guardian during an interview at the
Hyatt Regency, Port-of-Spain, on Tues-
Live at the Hyatt---Children of the
Drum started its ten-day run on
Wednesday to a sold out audience. For
the ten nights of the show s run, six
soca artistes will perform on stage.
The story is told via a musical pres-
entation, with dance, complimented
by performances from the original cast:
Bunji & Fay-Ann, David Rudder, Destra,
Blaxx, KI and Kees, joined by Olatunji,
Farmer Nappy and Raymond Ramnar-
ine. Children of the Drums is an artistic
soca exploration of the history of the
people of T&T.
Afoon said the many different eth-
nicities that make up the people of
T&T are symbolised by the drum, and
there is no better expression of the
country s culture than the steel drum.
"This year it is called Children of the
Drum. It looks at T&T and all those
who make up its ethnic composition.
In our history there were the indigenous
people, East Indians, Africans, Chinese,
Syrians and every one of them had a
drum. But we really ended up with one
--- the steel drum," Afoon said.
"Children of the Drum," Afoon said,
will have an educational and historical
component. Nigel Rojas, lead singer for
Orange Sky, will be a guest performer,
and tell a story through a musical inter-
lude. Reviving and reinventing the oral
tradition, Rojas will tell the story of the
steel drum and the significance it had
in the country s history.
Afoon hails the production quality
as first class and comparable to that of
stage productions seen in Las Vegas
and Broadway. Lighting, visual effects
and array of dramatic props will add
to the production quality of the show,
"With the right technology in it, the
production part of the show is fantastic.
It was like taking a show and putting
it in a controlled environment. So put-
ting together a show with all these ele-
ments where the artistes could really
sing. The audience is up close and per-
sonal with the artistes. It is very inti-
mate," he said
Afoon said Children of the Drums
is a family production that anyone can
see. He said unlike fetes and concerts
where people are congested in one spot
while watching a performance, everyone
in the audience is comfortably seated
and able to enjoy the whole show.
"When you go out to a fete, you can t take your
children there, and you cannot take your elderly par-
ents there. This show you can sit down and see. The
performers are up close with the audience. Everyone
sees the whole show. At no point in time is there a
bad seat in the show," Afoon said.
Hyatt is offering different packages that include
dinner and a show, a room and a show, or dinner,
a show and a room.
"With Hyatt, you have the option of having dinner
before or after the show. You can go to the café, stay
the night, have breakfast in the morning. As well,
you are assured safety and parking at the Hyatt,"
Children of the Drum is dedicated to the late Geof-
frey Holder who passed away last October. The show
started on Wednesday and runs until February 21.
On February 22 there will be a special tribute to
Black Stalin with a classic concert.
This tribute is in collaboration with the University
of the West Indies. All proceeds will go towards Black
Stalin s medical care.
