D Harvard Boys & D Harvard Posse

I have always held the belief that there are bands in Trinidad that cater to each masquerader's pocket, with many small and medium family bands providing persons interested in an intimate and affordable opportunity to play mas. Most times, however, these bands do not advertise online taking a more informal approach to the mas as opposed to the mega bands that pull out all the stops. So, I was quite happy to discover a website for D Harvard Boys and their Carnival 2009 presentation "Douglarisation".

For those of you unfamiliar with the term "dougla" it is a Trini word used to describe someone who is of both African and East Indian parentage. Hence the tag line for D Harvard Boys ;"Introducing Shaka Singh to Indra Abekiwe. A fusion of Indian and African dress creating a cultural expression."

The band comprises four sections as shown below:

Prices are ALL INCLUSIVE catering to between 200/250 masqueraders and music will be provided by a D.J.,St. James Tripolians (steelband) ,Indian and African drummers.
