Two Carnivals in Guadeloupe

Postby KarenS » Fri Feb 23, 2007 8:33 am

Nowadays, in Guadeloupe, you have two Carnivals. On the one hand, the traditional one, a Brazilian style of Carnival parades, with elaborate decorations, very colourful fancy costumes (what we call here the spangle carnival). The groups are nice and the costumes very expensive, the music is played with European instruments (saxophone, trumpets, organs, and, over all, snare drums).

On the other hand, you now get hundreds of natives and ethnic cultural carnival groups. Even if you are not Guadeloupean, you can easily see the differences.
