St.Kitts-Nevis Takes Eastern Parkway By Storm Photos by Samuel Jones


Brooklyn, New York (September 6th 2016):- St.Kitts-Nevis took Brooklyn by storm when the  Mass band “Gem of the Caribbean” blazed Eastern Parkway on Monday September 05th, 2016 as part of the West Indian Day Carnival Parade. The band, which boasted more than 100 strong, and was 2nd out of the gate on a perfect day for reveling. The DJ’s pumped the parkway with top Caribbean hits including those by SKN Artistes such as  Nicha B, Shakki Starfire, Nu-Vybes, Small Axe and many more , while the Mass players put on a spectacular display like only Kittitians and Nevisians can .  The Flag of St.Kitts-Nevis was held high and was seen along the length of the Parkway more times than any Labour Day Carnival in past years on Eastern Parkway. It was a hugely proud moment for the  twin island Federation as easily thousands of SKN Nationals lined the parade routs showing their flags in support of the highly colourful , vibrant and exciting Mass Band

The Mass Band “Gem of the Caribbean” represented mainly nationals from St.Kitts-Nevis but also included nationals from as far south as Guyana, and the USVI in the north.

The violence that marred the  J’ouvert jam was non existent on the Parkway and the scores of SKN Revellers reveled and  paraded without incident.

The GEMS OF THE CARIBBEAN Mass Troupe was led by Bandleaders DJ Morryshow and Delia Fahie. The Band Apperance on the parkway was made possible through the support of  the Minister of Tourism Hon. Lindsay Grant and the St. Kitts Tourism Authority,  ZIZ radio and television stations, the national broadcasting corporation of St. Kitts-Nevis and Censational Treasures.
