The word on the street is that Island People Mas band launch has been postponed until Friday 12 August due to inclement weather.  Sadness.  Guess I’ll just have to wait till next week to see both YUMA and Island People’s presentation for Trinidad Carnival 2012.

While we wait for the official Island People mas band launch, we can thank the good people at for the picture of the teaser costume on the road in Barbados during Crop Over 2011.  I certainly prefer how it looks live compared to the teaser promotion pic.

So tonight I’ll have to settle for watching the Oasis Carnival band launch for Carnival 2012 on Triniscene.  I don’t know anything about Oasis Carnival but I made plans for a small lime here and I don’t want the food to go to waste.  Who knows, maybe they will surprise me!
