Mas band D Krewe plans to continue its discount programme on costumes to new and die-hard masqueraders in C2K10, despite the looming economic meltdown, says bandleader Roland St George. Long-standing masqueraders with the three-year-old band—which operated as a section in Trini Revellers and the now defunct Legends—already benefit from group and individual discounts.George said if things go as planned, discounts could increase, but would depend on the band’s ability to source quality materials at low cost and/or the intervention of the Patrick Manning administration to reduce or remove duties on essential materials, used to ensure rich pageantry during the national festival............................Salvaje will bring 12 sections with themes such as Tsunami, Volcano and Rain Forest. Its media and band launch is scheduled to take place on August 29, at Amar Car Park, located on Long Circular Road, St James. Karma is D Krewe’s music band for the road on Carnival days.
