Bajan Revellers band launch 2015 – Experience
Another day another band launch for Notting Hill Carnival 2015!
Yes, passports are being delivered upstairs, amongst the Notting Hill carnival feathers, that is rather nice we have to say.
Crop Over is the name of the Bajan celebration, that starts in May and last all through summer. We’re reminded that the Calvacades (a serie of stage shows) mark the beginning of the celebrations, followed by the Calypso Tents, showcasing artists and music throughout the summer.
The conclusions of the celebrations is The Grand Kadooment with J’ouvert and street celebrations.
As it turns out, the London Bajan community is very much in touch with its traditions, but also in the importance of valorising them to attract tourism and achieve self-sufficiency as a nation.
An example that other Caribbean islands can certainly be inspired from (yes we’re looking at you Martinique and Guadeloupe!)
The costumes this year come in bright red and bright green, for a theme named Ignition.
Enjoy the images!
