We are proud to present a three-part Speaker Series at this year's Springfield Jazz & Roots Festival.

Trinidad-born jazz trumpeter Etienne Charles will transport the audience to Carnival in Trinidad through a program that weaves together short films with a lecture. The program will delve into
the experience of Carnival as a dialogue between the past and the present. Etienne will explore African-based musical elements and traditions discuss the masquerading traditions and the meaning behind the costumes and characters, the brass band tradition, and the evolution of the steel pans.
