Kaotic is Back for Carnival 2010

Just when I was thinking that only a few more bands are left to launch for Carnival 2010 comes news that Kaotic will be presenting "Precious Gems", band launch to take place on October 25 at Aura. This is surely surprising news as I was reliably informed that after their debut in 2009 Kaotic would not do a sophomore presentation,next thing I will be hearing Elements is also coming back!!!

I am back!!! What is new?

After a hectic Miami Carnival and subsequent vacation in Orlando I am back in Trinidad (still super tired from all the activity) and catching up on all that is happening in the mas world... so what is new?

While I was away Wee International held their band launch for "Tesoros del Caribe", photos from the launch can be found on their website.

Harts has now sold out ALL their male costumes, with only SIX female section options still open; the Harts men are not playing with their Carnival!

By now all registered TRIBE masqueraders should have gotten a receipt via email, if you have not hopefully you are not one of those whose "registration" was not registered!

Most Carnival bands have already launched for Trinidad Carnival 2010, still to come is Glenn Carvalho's "Aloha" which takes place sometime this month and Jhalwa - The Real Fire launching on the 25th of October. Other than those two still to launch, potential masqueraders now have their pick of bands and sections as none are fully sold out save TRIBE.

Island People, Legacy, Harts, Pulse 8, Genesis, Trevor Wallace, Trini Revellers, Dream Team, D Krewe and Spice still have spaces people!

Oh and Triniscene, you are really late with the Miami photos, even Trini Jungle Juice has beat you to the punch!
