MCDCA Brings ‘Masala’ Vibe To Woodford Square To Celebrate Indian Arrival Day
Trinidad and Tobago is on the cusp of celebrating the 173rd anniversary of the arrival of our East Indian ancestors to Trinidad and Tobago, and the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and the Arts paid tribute to the rich cultural legacy brought by these ancestors at its third installation of the ‘Live@Lunch’ Concert series at Woodford Square.
Titled “Live@Lunch Masala”, the event’s headliners were 2018 Chutney Soca Monarchs Neval Chatelal and Nishard M, with Rick and Vanessa of the Fusion Band and Andre Mangatal rounding off the cast. The attendees enjoyed doing the now famed ‘masala’ dance as the artists brought their performance from the bandstand to guests huddled around the trees of Woodford Square.
The MCDCA will dedicate the month of June to its Brown Bag Series featuring the National Performing Arts Entities, and therefore, the next edition of “Live@Lunch” will be held in July.
Live@Lunch is a partnership among the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and the Arts, the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the POS City Corporation and the Live Music District initiative spearheaded by MusicTT.
