WAYNE SMITH has been designing for Grand Kadooment bands since 1985, but this year will only be his second participating in Junior Kadooment. “Nothing happens before its time and last year was the right time for me to do it on my own,” he said. On Saturday when the Samaroos/Cave Shepherd Junior Kadooment comes off, Smith’s four-section band, These Fields And Hills, will highlight the steel donkeys, stiltwalkers and the presence of the national colours of ultramarine, gold and black. He promises it will be a spectacle in Barbadian history and culture. Here, Smith fits a costume on one of the 120 masqueraders in his band. (Picture by Nigel Browne.)
