Carnival in Roseau
Sensay costumes at Carnival
Drawing inspiration from west African ceremonial attire, these suits froth with strips of paper, rope, cloth, frayed plastic sacks or pounded agave leaves. The layers cascade from head to toe, forming a wild, shaggy silhouette topped by a mask with cow horns. The overall effect: angry bird, hence the name deriving from the Ashanti for "fowl."
