“Mama, this is mas!’’ This is a refrain that was common among masqueraders and spectators through the 1960s and 70s.
Back then, the reference points for the individuals and groups that entered Carnival Monday’s pageant judging at Queen’s Park, and paraded on the streets on Tuesday for the coveted Bank of the Year title, were mainly depictions of world events such as the Vietnam War as garnered from BBC radio reports; and from movies shown at Empire and Regal Cinemas.
Find anyone who was a witness or participant of mas in the “ole’’ days, and you’ll hear repeated mention of certain band leaders. I’ll bet you’ll hear of Willan Dewsbury; Ken Sylvester; Away; Dorothy Patterson; George Coard; and Waterman.
