Kes the Band will be celebrating Trinidad Carnival’s comeback with the inaugural live edition of the band’s IzWe festival in February 2023.
IzWe started last year as a series of socially distanced events. With the gradual lifting of Covid restrictions, Kes the Band has exported the IzWe concept to New York and Toronto, Canada, where the live shows proved popular. On Tuesday 14 February it will be Trinidad’s turn to experience the live event, at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in San Fernando.
Kes the Band wrapped up their 2022 US concert series on 26 November at Houston’s Tribeville fest and are wrapping up production on their latest album, Man With No Door.
After being banished by Covid to the ‘virtual’ zone from 2020 to 2022, Trinidad Carnival is determined to make up for lost time, so masqueraders and revellers are anticipating a record-breaking return to the streets on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 February 2023.
