Festival last mas

The grand finale was the annual Prime Minister’s Crop Over Reception and not even intermittent rain could stop this cross-section of revellers from having a last blast to the music of the winners in the 2016 festival.

Every year it is a hot ticket, and this year Barbadians from throughout the diaspora at home for the Barbados Biennial Network Conference 2016, diplomats based on the island and visitors, as well as hundreds of Barbadians got the opportunity to hear the stars of the just-ended festival sing some of their most popular tunes.

Paula Hinds and Kareen Clarke set the mood of the evening with a rendition of the 50th Anniversary Song, flagging the theme of nationalism that was evident in many of the night’s performances. Next, it was the turn of Junior Monarchs Summa Sargeant and Chad Monteplaisir to show off their winning talent. (GC)
