Cayman Bacchanal is the evolution of Carnival in the Cayman Islands; an
organization developed to redefine Carnival culture and make it the
islands’ own, with special celebrations leading up to Cayman Carnival.
Swanky International is renowned for setting the benchmark
amongst Mas Bands and driving force Craig Fredericks is determined that
this situation will not just continue but take Cayman Carnival Batabano
to the highest level yet.
The most colourful festival in the Caribbean is Cayman Carnival Batabano, presented by Lime. But whilst the adults prepare to shake their tail feathers, the future of dance is also ready to ruffle their own way through Camana Bay.
Few bands in the history of the world has had as much of an impact as The Wailers, who with their iconic frontman Bob Marley took reggae to the world. Although Bob Marley may no longer be with us, his legacy lives on as The Wailers continue to make music and carry his message.
Mas Band Swanky International, sponsored
by What’s Hot, has for six years been a central part of the Cayman Carnival
Batabano street parade, from humble beginnings to a band with over 200
followers last year.
