Festival sneak peeks
The Crop Over lift-off was a preview in more ways than one.
In between the music from the stage and the steel band that comfortably wound its way between patrons at Crop Over Central at the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) car park last Friday, people got a glimpse of some of the colour and splendour that will be on the road for Foreday Morning and Grand Kadooment this year.
The guys and gals in Road Warriors strutted their eye-catching stuff as did belles in Boisterous who flaunted the briefer and seemingly breezier pieces.
And as if to demonstrate the difference between Foreday and Kadooment that producer the NCF wants to maintain, the beads, feathers and finery were on show in the sections from Reggie Cave’s 2014 Kadooment band titled Mas And Music.
With more events included on the Crop Over calendar this year, Barbadians will have several other opportunities to see the offerings for the road as the Sweetest Summer Festival continues to unfold. (YB)
