CHAPTER ONE

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Background of study

In a bid to develop cultural tourism in Nigeria, a number of states of the federation have recently developed carnivals in which they showcase aspects of Nigerian and popular cultures in street performances. Cross River State, Rivers State, the Federal Capital Territory Abuja and recently also Imo State are at the forefront of this initiative. Carnival Calabar in Cross River State is probably more popular than the rest, judging from the organization, publicity, patronage, utilitarian thrust and artistic profile of the carnival.

 

          In terms of organization, the carnival held every 26th and 27th December and this year’s own – 28th, it is run by a commission made up of technically competent members who are either drawn from the performing and visual art industry/academia or are connoisseurs of the arts. The commission also collaborates from the well-established carnivals of Trinidad and Tobago and Rio De Janerio in Brazil. as part of technical manpower development for Carnival Calabar, workshops and series of interactive sessions have been held over the years for creative personnel involved in costume production, float construction, headgear production and other technical activities. In 2012, a detachment of a band from Brazil participated in Carnival Calabar probably to strengthen the technical partnership, while also providing a different variety of cultural performance.
