arnival has officially descended on the kingdom of Soca.

For the first time in three years, Tribe was able to organize a group launch.

And they did it in style.

With four events in three days, Tribe organized its SunsetWkn.

The three-day launch kicked off Friday with the Carib Sunset Theater.

The event which started at 7 p.m. has been dubbed “The Launch of Carnival 2023”.

There were various activities, including seven cultural exhibits showcasing the many traditions of T&T.

Port-of-Spain Mayor Joel Martinez also officially handed over the keys to the city of Port-of-Spain to Machel Montano.

The second day of events on Saturday began at 7am with sunSWEAT, a fitness party held at the Hasely Crawford Stadium training ground.

Soca artist Preedy (Akeem Chance) performed at this event.

On Saturday night, the Tribe Family of Bands kicked off at Complexe Jean Pierre at 6 p.m. The event featured the six bands that make up the Tribe family on Bands – Tribe, Bliss, Lost Tribe, Harts, Rogue and Pure.

Solange Govia, a costume designer who created seven sections for the 2023 Trinidad Carnival – Solmani for Harts, Nyanga for Bliss, Power for The Lost Tribe, Trinity for Rogue, Asteria for Harts, Saber for Bliss and Magna Carta for Tribe – voiced its fun at the return of the group’s launch season.

“After two years, there were definitely a lot of emotions and creativity accumulated without any way to express them artistically. Coming out of the Bandlaunch, I’m proud of every design I created and the experience of the spirit collaboration that Carnival really brings to the forefront for many of us who are connected to the industry as professionals,” Govia told Guardian Media.

“Design is what I was born to do, and I always appreciate the opportunity to connect with my masquerades in such a personal and culturally honest way. This season is very special and I’m so happy to be back and to create – I feel the love from everyone and am forever grateful,” she said.

The weekend ended with the Las Jam Carnival held at Hasely Crawford Stadium and featuring choreography by Bridgette Wilson.

Tribe CEO Dean Ackin said the SunsetWkn “will not just be spectacular, but how we take Carnival going forward.”
