The winning Road March song for this year was Real Ultraholics, which was by far the most popular tune played on the road for J’ouvert activities on Monday 6th and also on Parade Day, on Tuesday 7th August.
The runner-up band was the Odisi Band with their hit tune, “ready for Culture”.
In the School Troupes Category, the St. James’ Primary secured 216 points to take honours as the winning troupe. They were followed in second place by Ivor Walters Primary (175 points) and the St. Thomas Primary in third spot with 171 points.
The colourful and very creative presentation put on by the “Sailing in Memory of Christena” troupe took first place honours in the Fantasy Troupes Category. They amassed 354 points, ahead of Ultrasonic Island Girls United, who were tied with the NRP Youth Arm for second place. Both troupes gained 334 points.
The Ole Mas category was won by Nelson Jeffers.
However, Culturama officials have indicated that, in the Folklore Troupes Category, the auditors were unable to fairly determine and certify positions for this division, due to incomplete, insufficient and inconsistent scoring data provided by the judges.
The Nevis Culturama Committee has therefore apologised to all Folklore Troupes and patrons for this very serious mishap.
