Trini Revellers goes French for Carnival 2007

There was an article in Friday's Trinidad Express where the author reviewed Trini Reveller's launch from the perspective of a delegation of French nationals from the French Embassy of Trinidad and Tobago. The general concencus among those folk were that the costumes were "magnfique!". Trying to find that article online has proved futile, but suffice it to say the French were impressed!

The Newsday also had an interesting write up on Trini Reveller's launch:

It is going to be another epic of the grandest proportions to be presented by the Trini Revellers team.

Come Carnival Monday and Tuesday next year, Port-of-Spain will be flooded by 26 sections depicting various aspects of “The French Revolution,” that will surely captivate the attention of all witnessing the presentation, given the spectacle they created at the band launch at Pier 1 in Chaguaramas on Sunday.

Known for their winning presentations such as “Shanghai” and “The Gathering of the Tribes” before venturing in the big band category, Trini Revellers will be coming in full force to retain their title as Champion Band of the Year for a fourth consecutive year, having previously won the title with their 2004 to 2006 presentations “The Arabian Nights,” “Conquest of Indies” and “Rome - The Empire” respectively.

Indeed, “Le Roi Louis XVI” and “La Reine Marie Antoinette” will be coming to conquer the streets of Port- of-Spain with other sections portraying the “Royal Court,” “the Nobility,” the “Paysans,” the “Monarchy,” ‘the “Aristocrats,” “La Bastille,” the “French Soldiers,” the “Austrian Soldiers,” the “firing of the cannons, “Paris brule,” “September Massacres,” “Riots, the Reign of Terror,” the “Call to Battle,” and “Declaration of the Rights of Man.”

Fashion and culture of the Aristocracy will be felt in “The Masquerade Ball,” “Haute Couture,” “Les fêtes gallants de Versailles,” “ La vie de Marie An-toinette,” “Passion for Fashion” and “Liberté.” Even the Caribbean will be represented in “Les Antilles” and Trinité et Tobago.” It is a French band and the story will be told in French and English. The Tricolor will be flying high via Fraternité et Egalité and will end with “Vive La France.” It promises to be an experience to astonish the Trinidadian public.

Enrico Rajah, Public Relations Officer, is very ecstatic about the new presentation for Carnival 2007. Famous for their historical presentations, and with colourful designs by Geraldo Vieira Jr and Aaron Schneider, and led by two Kings of Carnival, Trini Revellers will unleash another historical spectacle on the streets of Port-of-Spain.

To achieve this remarkable presentation, Vieira Jr and Schneider are the main designers for 2007. Top Section Leaders include Deborah Bath-Gift, Wayne Newallo, Annie Jacques, Christine John, Tony Stanford, Gerald Moore and Gavin Alamani of D’Harvard Boys, Young Harvards with Stefan Stanford and Miguel Marquez, Dave Maharaj, Evelyn Herbert, Mike Johnson, Dexter Hosein/Ronald Clarke, Brennan King, Arlington Stewart, Curtis Atchinson, Joan Wilson, Roland St George and Richard Abraham, and Rabs Immortelle.

Dave Cameron and Jeff Gillette, the band producers are putting together the 2007 presentation with individuals such as Georgie Wilcox, Rudi Granger and Richard Commissiong, Jungle Fever, Friendz - Toronto, Raj/Ann Maharaj, Halcyann Prescott, Kyle Matas, Christine Sadler and Jason Jeremie who are joining the Revellers for the first time.
I did not add to my list of favourites the Royalty section by D Krewe, since I had said earlier that I really like their costumes. However, I think I should mention again that this is one of my favourites, and I was doubly pleased to see that they also included a full figured model wearing another version of the costume at the launch. Now this is a trend more band leaders should adopt in MY opinion, the young lady looks quite nice in her costume and masqueraders get to see what the whole suit/tankini option of the costume looks like on a realistic model:
