The Quiz: Our homepage shows a performer dressed in a typically colourful carnival attire. What are these costumed bands called?
Mas is short for masquerade and are bands that are at the heart of carnival parades. Their section leaders come up with new themes for their costumes each year which participants then wear to dance and sing as they march along the carnival route. There’s a judging point on the route where all the bands get marked by a panel of judges to determine the best overall band. Shake your tail feather!
The correct answer to this quiz is Mas.
