International Slavery Museum, Art Commission Brief – Sailor Mas costume 2007
Concept for the Sailor Mas costume (Fancy Sailor) Ray Mahabir- February 2007 Perhaps the most visual manifestation of cultural transformation is Carnival – a complex merging of European religious festivities within Latin America with elements of African festival. Trinidad is the cradle of carnival but the festival has been transported across the Caribbean, North and South America and to Europe.
Notting Hill Carnival in London, established by Claudia Jones, is the main carnival in Britain, celebrated by black and white. Other carnivals take place in cities across the country.
