Head of Marketing & Corporate Communications at FLOW Dominica, Kareem Guiste, has highlighted the need for greater transparency in judging during the Carnival season. Guiste made these remarks during a press conference Wednesday morning.
This follows a decision by two (2) traditional Carnival bands, not to participate in Carnival activities this year, due to their opposition of the selection of ‘Afro-Culture Stilt Walkers’ as ‘adult band of the year’ for carnival 2016.
In fact, the Thunderbirds Band and Carnival Corner are embroiled in a court dispute with the Discover Dominica Authority, over that very matter.
Guiste described groups not wanting to participate in carnival activities as being unfortunate.
