The Oracle is Coming

New band Oracle has launched their website for their 2008 debut presentation "GNOTHI SEAUTON - Know Thyself" and though it is just a teaser I am liking what is promised via the website:


Award winning designer Aaron Schneider joins the Saldenah legacy to present
'THE ORACLE' Trinidad's newest 'mas' band.

The Oracle is Trinidad's only 'mas' band that will guarantee your service experience.
Our mission is to evolve the story of the 'mas' started by the greats such as Harold Saldenah, Peter Minshall, and Wayne Berkeley. Combining the beauty of a well told story with the facilities of an all-inclusive, premium service, limited registration band. Bringing each and every masquerader a fulfilling experience that would appease all of the five senses by sending messages of splendour and beauty all whilst honestly observing the current standpoint of mankind. Our costumes will transport your experience, our service will floor you and our journey will be a well traveled road being revisited with new ideologies. Keep an eye out, we are about to rise above ground clearing the path along which 'THE ORACLE' shall dance. 'True mas must not die, it must merely evolve'
gnothi seauton,

Aaron Schneider, Scott Saldenah
bandleaders 'THE ORACLE' 2008.

I also see that in two days and 17 hours Oracle will be revealing Section I, lots of drama surrounds this band already! Sources told me their target market is the "young Mc Farlane" offering an all-inclusive package with theatrical costumes much akin to the two M's Minshall and Mc Farlane. If this is indeed the type of masquerader Oracle is looking to catering too I can only imagine the costumes! It's great to see a new band which offers more than just the "bikini and beads" and offers and alternate choice for new and old masqueraders. It would augers well in silencing the critics who only seem to think there are TWO bands in Trinidad and Tobago when it comes to Carnival when there is so much diversity!
