More cloth than feathers. That’s the best description for alternative Carnival mas band The Lost Tribe. Since their launch in 2015, the Woodbrook-based band has been turning heads with its modern interpretations of vintage portrayals. In an era when the monotony of mas is under intense scrutiny the brand offers a very different proposition.
“The Lost Tribe isn’t just a mas band. It’s a community and family of people that move together. Every decision we make from design to road amenities we do it with the masqueraders and group in mind, listening to and considering their needs and wants,” lead designer Valmiki Maharaj told the Sunday Mix recently.
