…Emancipation Village comes alive this weekend.
After two years of silence, African drums will once again sound off at the Lidj Yasu Omowale Emancipation Village, at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain, today.
This morning’s exciting reopening will lead off a weekend full of daily showcases and nightly concerts that culminates with a closing ceremony on Monday evening, following the annual Emancipation Day procession.
Emancipation Support Committee of Trinidad and Tobago (ESCTT) cultural officer Jackie Burgess says the energy among both administrators and creatives is electric as they prepare to celebrate “the return of in-person Emancipation celebrations with a bang”.
