The #sailor is perhaps the most popular #traditionalmas to play, due to its many variations, light weight, and inexpensive materials (please note the exception of the #fancysailor). The #Caribbean has a long history of occupation by naval militaries, including the French, English, and American Navies. Over time, heightened, distorted, and/or satirical portrayals of various sailors became a staple of #Carnival, especially for the versatility of the mas that allows for fancy portrayals (The Fancy/King variation), or non-fancy variations that embrace the #bacchanal nature of “#BadSailors” and “#SailorsAshore”.

🌸 CARNIVAL 50 FOR 50 ➡FACT 19⬅ 🌸 CALYPSO MONARCH 🌸
.
The #CalypsoMonarch (originally #CalypsoKing) contest is one of the two major annual #calypso competitions held in #Trinidad as part of the annual #CarnivalCelebrations. While #TrinidadCarnival has its origins in the 16th century, a singing contest was first held in 1911, when the Jubilee Establishment offered a prize for "the most original song on a local topic".
.
Further competitions were held after World War I, and the Calypso King contest was first held in 1939. After a break during World War II, it resumed in 1946.
.
The competition's most successful #calypsonians, #MightySparrow and #Chalkdust, each won the title eight times, the first in 1956, and the last in 1992 for Sparrow, and Chalkdust's reigns were between 1976 and 2009. (Via Wikipedia)

🌸 CARNIVAL 50 FOR 50 ➡FACT 17⬅ 🌸 FETE 🌸
.
The English word fête is borrowed from the Mediaeval Latin "#festus" via the French #fête, meaning "holiday" or "#party".
.
In Britain, fetes are traditional public #festivals, held outdoors and organized to raise funds for a charity. They typically include entertainment and the sale of goods and refreshments. In #TrinidadAndTobago and other English-speaking #Caribbean territories, fêtes are huge parties held during the #CarnivalSeason.
