Obamarama vs Obamarama !

So, for Jouvert 2009 you may have remembered I wrote about a new band called "Obamarama" who hit the streets of Port of Spain successfully for their inaugural year:

Obamarama Jouvert Reveller

Fast forward to last week when one of the persons involved in Obamarama Jouvert pointed out that their band was being aped for Point Fortin Borough Day by persons they did not know or had any working relationship with for Jouvert :

What makes this even more interesting is that the original "Obamarama" Jouvert also has plans of making a showing for Borough Day.

I decided to find out some more information on this other Obamarama band and had the most interesting conversation with the person whose number is listed on the facebook group. My first question was "is this Obamarama the same as the Jouvert band that played in Port of Spain?". I was told "I believe so, yes". I then repeated my question, "so you are saying this is the same Obamarama?", again I was assured it was!

Now, maybe there was another Obamarama Jouvert band apart from the original one (though I cannot recall any with the EXACT name) however this new band that is advertising for Point Fortin Borough day has no affiliation with the one I wrote about (Obamarama Jouvert)!

The persons involved with Obamarama Borough Day ( Jose Ann Price, Jameon Paul and Dane Paul) and not Regan, Cynthia or Tamara.

And to think I thought the Bacchanal was only confined to Carnival Monday and Tuesday! Here is hoping the original Obamarama copyrighted and registered their Band's name!
