2018 Carriacou Maroon and String Band Festival


Drums, their deep, throbbing vibrations are a notable feature deeply embedded in African culture.

They are played to mark every notable life experience.  And, if drums are the main musical instrument then certainly, music is at the very core of African traditions.  Carriacou’s ability to retain this aspect of their African heritage is displayed in the annual Carriacou Maroon and String Band Festival.

The festival is one that showcases Carriacou’s Maroon heritage highlighting  traditional customs and rituals.

The Carriacou Maroon and String Band Festival is usually held during the month of April.

And in 2018 the 8th instalment is carded for 27-29 April.

Visitors can look forward to enjoying three days of celebration that represents a union of local customs and African traditions.

Over the course of the three days there will be big drum and steel pan presentations, quadrille dances, Shakespeare Mas portrayals as well as string band performances.

Other highlights will be the flambeau parade and the dancing of smoked foods.

Maroon culture is about celebration of life.  Do come and celebrate with us.
