Music, music everywhere

T&T - After 17 years of being held on a Sunday, last year the organisers—Laventille Steelband Festival Foundation (LSFF) switched it to Saturday and the public’s response has been tremendous. Saturday’s parade began a few minutes after its advertised 5 pm start with a libation by Orisa babalorisa Erin Folami. This was followed by short addresses by LSFF chairman Michael Cooper, Minister of Community Development, Culture and the Arts Nyan Gadsby-Dolly and Laventille East/Morvant MP Adrian Leonce. Also present was culture director Suzette Corbett.
