Idakeda Group is pleased to collaborate with Bois Academy of Trinidad and Tobago to bring you a special edition of Kambule Campus on Saturday January 30, 2021. 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!
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!
Join us on Saturday 23rd January for our 6th Kambule Campus Workshop!
