On-Site Trinidad: Sneaking a Preview of 2012 Trinidad Carnival
One of the best things about visiting Trinidad this time of year is the unique opportunity it affords to get a behind the scenes look at the preparations for Carnival. It’s a special experience akin to venturing uptown in New York City to see the floats and massive balloons all lining up the night before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade… only much louder!
I was lucky enough to stumble upon the Silver Stars pan yard late last night, capturing a bit of their rehearsal for 2012 Trinidad Carnival in the video above. It was a unique experience I’ll be sure to tell you more about later. For now, just enjoy starting your day with some sweet steelpan sounds direct from Trinidad.
