People have been asking us to find out a few things about making mas for Notting Hill Carnival. With the top question being…
Why does it cost so much money for a bikini with beads and feathers?
To answer this question and others we called a ‘sit-down’ with three successful mas band/section owners.
- Kelly Rajpaulsing from Bacchanalia Mas Band
- Symone Nelson from Genesis Mas Band
- Flora Nabena from Mas With A Difference
We managed to get an inside look into what drives, influences and pushes these carnival-holics to keep producing great mas year in year out. They also give some great tips on how we could educate more people about the beauty of mas making and playing. And of course we got the answer to the question everyone has been asking. This is an interview not to miss.
So, put the kettle on, make a cuppa, get the biscuits out, sit back and find out a thing or two.
