Crop Over festival in Barbados comes out of the convergence of different histories and spaces. Grand Kadooment Day is the pinnacle of the Crop Over festival. Surrounded by Mas bands, dancers and street revellers, we are submerged into the heady world of masquerade and the carnivalesque.
Crop Over is a project by Sonia Boyce and
was commissioned by Harewood House Trust and the National Art Gallery
Committee, Barbados, with financial support from the Arts Council
of England and the Prime Minister’s Office, Barbados.
