The Trinidad Carnival 2013

A native speaking about the Carnival of Trinidad, wrote that according to many this would be the second most beautiful Carnival in the world after the one in Rio, especially because of the warm participation of the population who took to the streets in disguise, especially in traditional costumes such as donkey, devil and a robber. The entire population, including children are the most colorful and imaginative during this Caribbean carnival.

In Trinidad they celebrate in the rhythm of Soca & Calypso powered by the beat of steel cookware which, in fact is the soundtrack for what is the biggest Carnival in the Caribbean where the European and African traditions mingle giving rise to something unique and original. There are so many parties, so many concerts and competitions, many fashion shows, some of which are open to the public attending.

The highlight of the Carnival is the feast of J’Ouvert which begins in the middle of the night, four in the morning, the last Monday of the Carnival. In the darkness the devils, demons and goblins of the island take control of the party, bringing to life the most ancient and obscure rites of tradition.  It’s a good time to lose your inhibitions, dressing of oil or chocolate, or getting lost on the road during the last garment.
