2010 has been a powerful year for Eintou's play about the 1881 riots in Port of Spain and across the country to save the Carnival that we know and love today.
This year, Eintou decided to use the Kikongo word for ‘procession' ‘Kambule' as the title of her play, instead of the more familiar word ‘Canboulay' which derives from the French ‘Cannes Brulees', Burning of the Canes. Additionally, Dara Healy joined the cast as the Baby Doll, Chibale added another member to their group, three year old Ire and for the first time, the play was showcased to a huge audience in South Trinidad.
And as always, the stellar cast, drumming ensemble and technical crew rallied to ensure both shows in North and South Trinidad were high quality, professional offerings.
In both locations the media was out in full strength. Enjoy some of the coverage by clicking on the links below:
