Miami’s Pérez Art Museum is set to celebrate National Caribbean Heritage Month with a lively and immersive spectacle, bringing the sights, sounds, and movements of Trinidad and Tobago’s world-famous Carnival celebration to its walls. Trumpeter, percussionist, and composer Etienne Charles has organized the event, with the aim of bringing the unique street energy of Trinbagonian Carnival to life on stage.
Featuring multimedia and traditional carnival characters, the event will showcase Charles’ original compositions alongside ritualistic imagery, grooves, and dances. Following the performance, revellers will be invited to join dancers from Miami Carnival on the waterfront terrace for an after-party featuring Caribbean sounds and beats with DJ Pressure Point.
The Miami Carnival Parade of Bands will feature the colorful costumes of over 20,000 masqueraders and revelers competing for bragging rights, providing a kaleidoscope of Caribbean cultures under one umbrella. Admission to the event is $16 for adults, with PAMM members gaining free entry. Don’t miss your chance to experience this high-energy celebration of Caribbean culture!
