Please support our fellow alumnus Etienne Charles with his production of “Carnival – The Sound of a People”

Sunday 29th January, 2017

6 PM – 9 PM

One night only!

“In 2010, I went home for my first carnival since 2001. That feeling of reconnecting with home during our most vibrant ritual is one I’ll never forget. As a musician, the sounds spoke to me.

Three years ago I started conceptualising a suite of music inspired by the sounds and traditions of our Carnival ritual. In between 2015 and 2016, I spent 11 weeks in Trinidad & Tobago on my Guggenheim Fellowship researching as many elements of Carnival as I could find. We recorded video and audio every step of the way. After gathering hours of field recordings, I began writing the suite.”
