H appy Carnival 2014! Once
again we meet, here, on the
streets of T&T to celebrate Car-
nival. Today, we are truly, as
Machel Montano would tell you,
the happiest people alive. This
small island is a privileged place
rooted in strong traditions that
collide in the best way imagina-
ble every Carnival.
Jab molassies and dame lor-
raines remind us of our historical
roots tied briefly to the ignoble
act of slavery. Minstrels strum-
ming on their banjos remind us
of how many traditions we have
borrowed from around the
world---including the US---while
moko jumbies trace their roots to
We are a fiercely independent
people. Our creative spirit soars.
Witness some of the best soca
songs that defined this Carnival:
Machel Montano s Happiest Man
Alive and Yes, Machel, we are
Haunted because it has been an
We propel ourselves forward,
chipping, wining---even dragging
our feet---down the road. One
step at a time. Step by step we
make it to our destination, the
Each Carnival is a journey.
Each Carnival is proof of what
we can accomplish creatively. We
propel ourselves toward the
future experimenting with samba
rhythms, hip hop and pop blend-
ing with the scintillating rhythm
of soca music.
We jump up in modern fetes,
but relish the Big People( s) Party
as Farmer Nappy reminded us
this Carnival. We honour the
past and pay homage to our
sense of humour.
It has been a bumper year for
humour with Man in Yuh House
by Cassi. Chutney music repre-
sented well this year with good
solid humour. Chutney music is
claiming its place in the Carnival
forum---not just as a side-show
but as an equal part of the cele-
Look at all the mas, skimpy as
usual, but Peter Minshall is back
and that is good news. Maybe
next year there will be more
street theatre Minshall style.
Look around. We bounce
everything from bumpers to yo-
yos, right, SuperBlue? We once
honoured the tradition of wining
the stuffy, snobby upper classes
of colonial times. Now, it s a way
of asserting our independence.
There s plenty of pan sides
chipping down the road even
though as Bunji reminds us, "We
have a truck on the road."
Together, they paint a fine por-
trait of the past and present.
Look at all the talent that
comes from this small country. It
is simply amazing. That s
because, as Bunji told us, there s
no place any soca singer would
dream of being, but here in Car-
nival celebrating our right to
claim the streets and play our-
Think about it. Nowhere in the
world could you find all of the
big singers in one place at one
time and in one celebration. We
focus all our energy on Trinidad
from late December until the end
of Carnival. Bunji s right. This is
the place to be.
There s a sailor band conjuring
up bygone days with its sailor
dance, and there s a wild Indian
band with masqueraders sporting
their feathered headdresses.
Everywhere we turn the thread of
tradition weaves its way through
Carnival reminding us that we
live our history on this day.
There is no escaping the past,
but that s all right because Car-
nival finds a way to make it
Today, we celebrate who we
are. We celebrate our history and
our culture. We thank God that
we are part of this country. Yes,
there are problems here, but it
has always been a special place
full of life, love and celebration.
Carnival is a time when we
forget our troubles. We dream for
a moment that when Ash
Wednesday rolls around, we will
continue to live this dream of
unity that we share every Carni-
val. We will continue to feel
happy and blessed to play a mas
and to play ourselves. There s
nothing in the world more
important than being an individ-
Make this a memorable and
happy Carnival. Be careful. Stay
safe. Remove yourself from igno-
rant people bent on arguing or
spoiling your fun. Don t get
sucked into arguments. Respect
women. Respect yourselves. Be
responsible drinkers. Don t over-
do it. Get high on the music.
Jump with all of your heart.
Dance, prance, chip, wine, jump
and wine some more.
Happy Carnival, T&T. Enjoy
yourself. Play yourself. Make this
a Carnival to remember for the
rest of your life.
THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE!
