Carnival in Jamaica is now one of the most-anticipated events in the Caribbean.
As the country prepares to celebrate this annual event that culminates on April 8, we at Loop are taking the reins in giving our readers all the information they need to understand and enjoy this festival.
We continue our coverage with a look at the people shaping the festivities, primarily the bandleaders and party promoters who are responsible for the expansion of our Carnival and its popularity around the world. We kick things off with the first and oldest Carnival band, Bacchanal Jamaica.
