FORMER MINISTER of Information Glyne Murray has expressed concern about the representation of Barbadian Culture during the Crop Over Festival.

Murray said costumes had become a parade of bikinis, beads and feathers. Even the current recession has not forced bandleaders to come up with innovative costumes depicting local culture.

He was speaking recently as St Stephen’s Primary launched its Kiddies Kadooment band Bajan Treasures: Going, Going Gone.
