We hear from Richard about his July 2021 Trinidad experience.
Though born in Trinidad, I grew up in Washington DC. Never really feeling I had a connection to Trinidad until my grandparents passed away. Whenever I returned to Trinidad was for a short visit to see them. After their passing, I played Mas for the first time as a celebration to my Grandmother. Everything Carnival was her passion. Pan, Calypso, Costumes. I met so many wonderful people playing Mas. I have repeatedly done so every year.
