RANGEELA: We Mark Your Memory
Throughout the Caribbean exists retentions of cultural elements derived from the first peoples to indentured migrants. “Rangeela….We Mark Your Memory” is a cultural showcase of literature, music, and dance paying homage to the memory of the East Indian contribution to Caribbean culture. Complex and ever vibrant, East Indian culture continues to radiate with historical authenticity and modern explorations.
Trinidad and Tobago boast some of the region’s leading East Indian cultural icons, giving birth to new art forms such as chutney music. From the Hindustani word for ‘Colourful’, Rangeela celebrates the diversity of our culture and that the preservation of our identity, secures the memory of our forefathers for future generations. Featuring readings by T&T writers Patti-Ann Ali, Stella Chong Sing, and Gabrielle Jameela Hosein.
