Harts’ Je Taime Carnival: naughty but fun
Harts Carnival 2013 portrayal, titled Je Taime Carnival, is downright naughty, but it is fun! Models wearing cotton candy pink fish net stockings and similar patterned set in fluorescent green, accessorised by opera- styled gloves took the spotlight and enthralled the crowd at the August 17 presentation, held at the 02 Park in Chaguaramas. Fifteen sections were put on show on the moonlit night where a bevy of beauties took the spotlight. Belle, Diable Melasse, Folies Bergere, Jamettes, La Courtisane, Mardi Gras and La Baccanal were some of the titles for works of mas of French and Spanish influences.
According to the band’s foreword, the idea behind the portrayal was to represent the spirit of an age, when Carnival developed in Trinidad, with special focus on the French influence of the period. The Harts Carnival team went on to chronicle the reputed start of the national festival in 1784, the year after the Spanish rulers invited the French to settle on the island. Kudos were in order to the Harts Carnival sound design team, who allowed soca ditties to dominate the presentation for a memorable world premiere of Je T’aime Carnival
