Tobago Kicks off Its Carnival and it’s Golden Boy Wants Us To Celebrate on the Road on Both Islands.

Tobagonians will take to the streets to parade on Carnival Monday and Tuesday too.

Tobago, the smaller of the twin Island Republic that hosts the the World’s Greatest Show on Earth, has itself launched its carnival 2018 season. Last Friday, the launch took place in the capital Scarborough.

Over the years, Tobago has produced a few awesome Carnival contributors, among them, Shurwayne Winchester, Princess Adanna and of course, the Queen herself, Calypso Rose. Tobago has reportedly received $7 million TTD for funding their carnival festival, which is expected to be much the same as Trinidad’s in terms of cultural expression, but certainly on a smaller scale, to the massive parade and feting excitement that’s enjoyed for weeks on the large island.

Shurwayne Winchester’s Celebrate is in the Road March race.

Meanwhile, Tobago’s golden boy of Soca, Shurwayne Winchester remains upbeat and positive heading into the climatic days of Carnival 2018. His hit single, “Celebrate”, a track that calls on everyone to celebrate their life, no matter their circumstance, is receiving tremendous love across the airwaves.

The artiste, who has for years, delivered hits that range from Power Soca contenders, to Road March anthems and Groovy Soca melodies, remains a force in the industry, despite what people may think. Winchester, prior to Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival commencement, enjoyed bookings in various territories overseas, including Toronto, Miami and even Las Vegas.

This past weekend, he performed at J’ouvert Splash in Arima, iUp in Chaguaramas among other events.

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.
