When themes are getting announced, and launch dates are being set – you know that Caribana 2k14 is just around the corner. Don’t mind the snow outside, sunshine soon come! One of the first bands out of the gate is Carnival Nationz. Celebrating 10 years as a part of Toronto Carnival, the band had a contest for revellers to guess what the theme would be. After being inundated with some creative responses (Dirty Dancing anyone), they’ve announced HAVANA, as their 2014 theme.
According to the press release:
As we celebrate 10 years of mas making in Toronto, CNz will be taking everyone on an pulsating and sensual journey to one of the most storied cities in the Western Hemisphere… called “the Rampart of the West Indies” and one of the most electrifying places to be in the 60s… “HAVANA” is a story of love, war, revolution, sex, rum, scandal, music, dance and sublime beauty…Join us as we pay homage to a place that “in terms of beauty, only Venice and Paris surpassed…” claimed American author Ernest Hemingway.
Look out for the band launch on May 3 at Koolhaus. For more information check them out on twitter, instagram and facebook.
