It's a well-known fact that celebrating carnival teaches you a lot about yourself while understanding and accepting other cultures, so I added it to my bucket list. One year, during carnival season I want to be dipped in glitter and feathers while wearing a sexy handmade masquerade costume; jumping, waving and celebrating life. This is the real deal. If I'm going to do this, I'm going to do this right!
Since I really want to do this the proper way, I will spend some time doing the necessary research. I want to know the difference between dancing in a carnival and being a part of mas. What is the true meaning of carnival? I want to learn more about the atmosphere, the art, the steel pans, the talent and the craft behind the creation of such a worldwide movement.
Thanks to TOCS, one of our valued readers here at TheWickedestTime.com; I am able to answer some of my questions related around Carnival. He introduced me to a website, Mama Dats Mas that's packed with useful information, art, interviews and interesting perspective in support of the performance art project in the United Kingdom.
If carnival is something of interest to you, I encourage you to check out Mama Dats Mas to learn more about it and while you're there, learn how you can become involved.
