A release issued by the Mas Camp informs that the collaboration is slated to take place on Friday, 17th December 2010 at the Porte Zante terminal and dubbed a “feel good, do good” event which promises extensive positive vibrations.
The event is designed to bring to the fore the work of artistes whose work has focused on violence against woman and the empowerment of women. These, the release explained, include Socrates, Astro, Venus, Masud Sadiki and Konris, who will be performing alongside an unnamed “special guest artiste”.
According to www.un.org, “United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign aims to prevent and eliminate violence against women and girls in all parts of the world. UNiTE brings together a host of UN agencies and offices to galvanize action across the UN system to prevent and punish violence against women. Through UNiTE, the UN is joining forces with individuals, civil society and governments to put an end to violence against women in all its forms.”
While musical entertainment will provided at the event by seasoned DJ, Ronnie Rascal and the Asylum Sound System, the release informed that “a selection of Caribbean culinary delights will be featured on the buffet stations coupled with selected premium drinks from our partners, and special local treats.”
Entrance to this event is by ticket only available from PhunnMakers executives while a limited number of VIP tables will be available on a first come first reserved basis. The dress code is elegantly casual with dancing shoes, so come prepared to party the night away.
PhunnMakers Mas Camp is currently the longest running carnival mas camp. Its philosophy is authentic Kittitian while expressing creative pageantry in a kaleidoscope of cultural elements. Founded 10 years ago, the group is preparing to stage its milestone production for this year’s national carnival in December. Coming out of a second place showing for last carnival, a third place position for our debut in Culturama, and followed closely by another first presentation in Leeds Carnival, PhunnMakers has truly become an international force.
Their 2010 – 2011 presentation is entitled ‘De Calypso Legend’ as a tribute to our very own King Ellie Matt. The mas camp, the Phunn Spot is located at the corner of Kim Collins Highway and Frigate Bay Road and is the Friday Night action area for pre-carnival events.
Teaming up with the UNiTE Campaign, are other sponsors MiyVue.com, Carib Brewery; Brimley Gold and Grace Tropical Rhythms through their agent, OD Brisbane; Digicel; ZIZ Radio and Television, SKNVibes, and Sunshines Beach Lounge.
