Dressed as jaguars, peacocks, tropical fish, starfish, coral, and a sea weed forest, the kids will sing, dance, and drum to Brazilian, Cuban, Haitian, and Trinidadian rhythms. Carnival Arts apprentice musicians will perform with master percussionists Michael Kernahan, Catelus “Ton Ton” Laguerre, and Arelan Torres.
