Trinidad: Ancestral spirits invoked at Carifesta Salaaka Feast

Weeks after hosting its signature presentation, Salaaka Feast, at the Tobago Heritage Festival, Pembroke was again the focus of attention on Monday night as the village delivered a revised version of the production, as part of Carifesta XIV at the Pembroke Heritage Park, Goldsborough.

On this occasion, though, the Pembroke Heritage Folk Performers shared the spotlight with dance troupes from St Vincent and the Grenadines and Haiti in a captivating display of culture, colour, creativity and regional unity.

Titled Welcome In A D Yard, the presentation, led by artistic director Jesse Taylor and cultural activist Wendell Berkeley, paid tribute to Pembroke’s African ancestors and those from throughout the Caribbean.
