Africa in the T&T Carnival: Towards Visibility and Recognition

The Idakeda Group in collaboration with the Emancipation Support Committee and the Ketus Ifa Institute presents a discussion on the influence of Africa in the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival.

The Africans who were forcibly brought to the Caribbean during enslavement arrived with their knowledge of healing herbs, traditional belief systems, and ancient masking traditions. The Trinidad and Tobago Carnival is a complex, fascinating treasure house of African cultural influences. From the Gelede masquerade of Nigeria to the stamping and whistle blowing of the Zulus in South Africa, Africa is everywhere in the T&T Carnival!

In celebration of African History Month, join Eintou Pearl Springer, Attillah Springer, and Dara E. Healy as they explore the powerful, spiritual elements of Africa that are woven into the modern celebration of Carnival.

Join us as we celebrate the art, philosophy, and practice of Kalinda – the martial traditions practiced by our stick fighters. Kambule celebrates and remembers the heroic efforts of the stick fighters of 1881 whose intervention effectively saved Carnival for the people.
Bois Academy, spearheaded by Jamie Philbert and Rondel Benjamin, is the leading national institution teaching, researching, and documenting our martial traditions. Join us this Saturday as we explore why Kalinda and Kambule are the heart and soul of the Trinidad Carnival!
The session will be broadcast live on Facebook @kambulett and Youtube @Kambule Movement at 4 p.m. on Saturday January 30.

With so many mainstay Carnival events moving online this year, what rights do performers, particularly those who take part in traditional mas characterisation, have to royalties for the use of their image online?
We’re pleased to be joined this weekend inside the Kambule Campus by Leslie Ann Wills-Caton, General Manager and Film Commissioner at FilmTT.
Don’t miss this discussion if you’re a performer, photographer, or event coordinator!
