Ocean Two spreads fever
Guests and staff partied well into the night on Wednesday as Ocean Two Resort gave visitors its own slice of Crop Over.
Joined by Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley, the hotel captured the sounds and masquerade of Crop Over, which Lashley described as a festival that could be listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Describing Crop Over as one of the most packed festivals in the world, he said his ministry was looking at the possibility of having it listed, since the National Cultural Foundation produced over 40 events yearly covering gospel music, steel pan, folk, visual art and calypso in the festival’s six weeks.
“It celebrates who we are as a people in Barbados,” he told guests, noting that Crop Over was rooted in slavery and the sugar crop but had evolved into a spectacle of colour and music. (RJ)
