Party the Yuma way
’Tis the season to be jolly! But the folks at mas band YUMA took that well loved adage to an entirely new level on December 11, at an event titled Twelve. Venue was the band’s Alcazar Street, St Clair, headquarters.. It should have been the time when members ought to have been more focused on gift wrapping and ultimately giving, but it seemed that despite the hearty offering of soca parang, the melody of Machel Montano’s Road March hit Advantage was all that still occupied their minds and consequently all they could see before them was the stage.
The scenes of frenzy that filled the precincts of the band’s compound was clearly a test run for the band’s Carnival Monday and Tuesdays vibe, through the streets of Port-of-Spain. The evening, however, began with the obvious Yuletide cheer and the savoury food and drink synonymous with the occasion, before growing into scenes of snake-oil waste-lines in groove mode from the YUMA women, before stepping up to gyration levels. That’s when YUMA men began the shadowing-bumper ritual before Carnivalesque scenes consumed the event, which could only have been done in fine YUMA style.
