King and Queen of the Bands is one of Saint Lucia’s best carnival products and arguably, one of its most underrated events. The event showcases the wealth of talent in the Creative Industry and is simply unparalleled.
Every year designers (most) push the envelope and wow the masses with their ingenious creations. This year was no different. The costumes were dream-like and the portrayals were even better. Each costume showed great detail and matched its theme. The costumes were carried perfectly by most and as they crossed the stage, the costumes came to life, boasting their superior nature. It was a wonderful showcase; one which displayed the heart of carnival.
A number of bands participated in the event which took place at The Sab Playing Facility on Thursday July 12, including Asari Tribe, Looshan Revellers, Meltdown XD, RoyalitiesxTreme and Tribe of Twel.
Though they all aimed to please, it was Tribe of Twel that stole the show yet again with their breathtaking costumes. The band walked away with both the King and Queen of the Bands titles and captured runner up spots as well.
