Trinidad Carnival: Layers of Meaning

Carnival in Trinidad, celebrated two days before the season of Lent, is a time of musical (often Calypso) celebration. However, Carnival and Calypso are about much more than music and revelry. They are linked by a multi-layered tradition that encompasses religion, politics, and culture. Ray Funk will talk about the meaning behind the merrymaking. Speaker, Ray Funk. Lay Leader, Lisa Sporleder. Accompanist, Vera Alexander.
