Rapso in the heat of Carnival


The 10th anniversary of Rapso Explosion will take place simultaneously in the heat of Carnival. The annual showcase features all aspects of the oral tradition including a variety of lyrical styles as well as drum and percussion experiences.

Rapso pioneer Bother Resistance says the event provides a platform for the nations poets and calypso artistes to give a voice to the festival.

Traditional characters will also be incorporated in the performances of the midnight robber (the original rap artiste), the Pierrot Grenade and the Tobago Speech Band. The festivities kick off at the National Library, on February 13th.
