In 2004, the Eintou Springer play then spelled ‘Canboulay', transformed the re-enactment of how ordinary people and stick fighters saved the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival from colonial repressive efforts.
The play grew in recognition, respect and popularity, causing a change of venue to accommodate spectators. In 2010, the play now called ‘Kambule' after the Kikongo word for ‘procession', was performed to critical acclaim and appreciative audiences in San Fernando as well as in Port of Spain.
The latest issue of Caribbean Beat magazine reviews the Canboulay tradition and the contribution of playwright, poet and author, Eintou Pearl Springer to this local history.
