Could _____________ Take The Road March!? Saw It Coming?

Patrice Roberts looked incredible at Army Fete 2018.

The weekend’s now winding down and two fetes between Friday night and Sunday morning may have very well proven just how much support the ground in particular, is giving to a man the world has come to know as THE BOSS. Iwer George may very well be the man to take the Road March title in 2018. His words, spoken at the very beginning of the carnival season, just prior to him unleashing ‘Savannah’, have easily cemented his ambitions in a way that no other artiste’s music has, thus far. They really say, there’s power in the spoken word.

On Friday night, while cheerful fetters enjoyed the vibe at Army Fete- certainly still the biggest and most enjoyable carnival fete, bar none, in Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival, the Boss, Neil Iwer George, was backstage, preparing to unleash his venom. And that he did. Performances by a cast that included the likes of Shal Marshall, Blaxx, Ricardo Drue and the All Stars, The Ultimate Rejects, Bunji and Fay Ann and even Machel Montano, would do nothing to shake the crowd like Iwer George did at Army Fete. While Road March contender, Patrice Roberts’ effort to do damage to the savannah with her melodious, ‘Sweet For Days’ was heartfelt and ambitious, climbing atop Kevin Da Costa’s (Johnny Bravo’s) back and making her way to the front of the massive crowd, was simply not enough. Her effort was simply that- an effort, as while many looked on from the displays that showed her performance, not many had gotten enough of a vibe and energy to propel them to the front where her antics unfolded. Later, Iwer would show Roberts and every other artist at the venue, just how it’s done.

The Army Fete experience remains powerful. The vibe is electric and with a sense of gritty familiarity, this fete, deemed the last of the hardcore carnival fetes, is and will hopefully be, a staple for many years to come. Iwer George’s name will certainly be among the greats to have shattered the silence at Army. In 2018, George certainly brought everyone to their feet. From front to back, flags waved and the people powerfully proclaimed their 2018 king. “George Fuh de road,” they chanted and with the big flag crews- Two Face, Powder Posse, G6 Empire and all the others, waving vibrantly, there was no denying that Iwer was their choice for the road.

It didn’t stop at Army Fete though.

Why Marie Collette Has Everyone Saying, “Take Meh Money”.

Published

on

The vibe of carnival lies in the belly of the masquerader.

There are masqueraders who live for the ‘wine’ and then they’re those who are the embodiment of freedom, wild abandon, bliss and happiness. These are the masqueraders who show the world why being a part of Carnival isn’t an option, it is a requirement. Trinidad and Tobago swimwear and costume designer, Marie Collette has done just that.

In what can only be described as her selfless expression of love for the music and mas, Collette, in her fifth presentation of mas design for YUMA, delivered a jaw dropping stage show of her “ULTRA” costume design for YUMA in 2019. She delivered a seamless portrayal of what every masquerader should essentially strive to be on the road come Carnival Monday and Tuesday, edifying through movement, the masses who’d been looking on, on Sunday night. This was no ‘posey posey’ portrayal- this was a glimpse of the future, a glimpse into Carnival 2019.

Collette has been designing swimwear for a bit. Her passion has transcended into costume design.

Collette has been designing and claiming her space in the Caribbean design landscape for some time. Her killer bathing suits which are sold online at www.mariecollette.com have been enhanced, to say the least, transforming her ‘job’ into a passionate alignment with the ‘Monday wear’ trend that effectively catapulted her to where she is at now.

YUMA will deliver ‘Jukebox’ in 2019, a theme that will include sections like Fever, Wild Thoughts, It’s Carnival, Lemonade, Mi Gente and of course, ULTRA by Marie Collette.
