The Trinidad and Tobago carnival was going full swing this month, and Trinidadians say it is the best carnival in the world, Brazil, second. This area of the Caribbean is a mix of cultures and the celebrations reflects this with costumes, stick-fighting, limbo dancing and of course music. Costumes are the usual over the top mix of sequins and feathers.
As we are in Trinidad no carnival would not be complete without Soca music, and of course I could not resist heading this post after the world wide dance hit "(Feeling) hot, hot hot". Some of the big names have not been appearing at the carnival but everyone turned up this year, perhaps the prize money of $2M was an incentive. Here is this year's winner Michel Montano with "Advantage", not the actual Carnival footage but there are feathers and sequins.
