Caribbean Festival Arts by
Introduces the festival arts of the Caribbean, wherein elements of dance, sculpture, painting, music and poetry intermingle. Vibrant photos--of Jonkonnu, a Christmas parade in Jamaica, the Lenten carnival of Rara in Haiti, the Hosay celebration of Trinidad, New Orleans' Caribbean-inspired Mardi Gras and others--illustrate this in-depth study. An examination of festival incarnations on the various Caribbean islands explores the inter-island differences and the socio-political implications of the masquerade.
