Program Notes

Frederick Street is the main shopping street of Port of Spain, Trinidad, and therefore also the main parade route for masquerade bands during Trinidad’s historic and world famous Carnival celebration each year.

The six tunes, written by the composer, that appear in this piece are all evocative of the various genres of Carnival music that have emerged over time -- kalenda martial arts music, calypso songs, soca street party music, and traditional rhythms that accompany the many colorful and richly meaningful masquerade characters that have developed since the mid-19th century. What holds them all together are the ubiquitous rhythms of Afro-Caribbean percussion. We can imagine ourselves along the street, watching bands of masqueraders one after another passing by until, finally, we realize that the first band has come back around the corner again and we have seen them all!
