    About Masquerade
    Through poetry and song, Masquerade explores the ways in which distance, remembrance, and seventeen years away from home shape a man. Masquerade critiques and celebrates the Trinidadian ethos by examining the influence its seminal music -- Calypso -- exerts on a poet and the larger world.

    One hour in length, the poetry concert provides Caribbean and American audiences the opportunity to experience this historically significant and politically relevant art form through the lens of one man's life in poem and song. Whether reinterpreting the tale of a calypso's central character, relating his mother's early advice on race, or conjuring the sights, sounds, and scents of Carnival, Masquerade offers intelligent entertainment of the most enjoyable order.
