August 10 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Another band and true carnival artist are Clary and Speedy from Mahogany mas band they are also a regular band that S.i.A works with on national and international projects…
‘My first memory is of winning a carnival competition in a gorgeous little fairy costume,’ Clary recalls. ‘I still have the cup from it.’ Speedy’s parents, on the other hand, were bitterly opposed to carnival. ‘My father was a local politician and he disapproved. I was always sneaking out to play mas. One time, I ended up making 400 costumes overnight. That’s how I got my nickname.’
