…a musical and rhythmic detour…

For a Friday musical detour into the weekend, we look back.

In Trinidad, J’Ouvert (Jour Ouvert), early Carnival Monday, signals the unleashing of the Carnival, when the Merry Monarch of Carnival reigns for two days of unabashed revelry. But that is a story by itself.

This 2014 J’Ouvert morning that precedes the appearance of the costumed bands, the legendary Trinidad All Stars is captured on amateur video in one of its stellar performances throughout Port-of-Spain. Here, not just the melody but the performance lingers on, as the band continues to live up to its renown, and in doing so drawing dancing celebrants in its wake.

…Quality of life…
