Carnival Corner, one of Dominica’s well-known and longest-serving carnival costume bands, says it will highlight Dominica as the nature island during this year’s costume band road parade on Carnival Tuesday.
The group says its presentation will be guided by the theme ‘Angels in Paradise’ in keeping the originality of Dominica’s carnival.
“Paradise in the theme will be regarded as Dominica and the angels will be regarded as the natives. So we will be highlighting some of the flora and fauna that Dominica produces and we will also create a section where you have about 20 to 25 angels parading the band,” Chairman of Carnival Corner Curtis Gordon says.
He anticipates “Angels in Paradise” which will be launched Sunday will be appealing to visitors and will give them a picture of what Dominica is.
Carnival Corner has been known for its consistent participation in Dominica’s carnival, and has captured awards like the Best Ole Mass Band award, the best band award and King and Queen of the band prize over the years.
