Rapso Explosion………….
is the point of reference, the sign post where the young lyrical warriors interface with the traditional Carnival talk artistes like the Midnight robber, the pierrot grenade and the Chantuelle

Rapso Explosion………….
is the junction where the power of the drum and percussion music
activates the Camboulay Spirit in a celebration of Life, and Love of Liberty. It is a rootical reminder that the first music of the Trinidad Carnival was the power of the drum and the song of the Chantuelle

Rapso Explosion………
The heartbeat of the Carnival experience pulsating with the
rootical sound and energy in a package that is entertaining as well as educational. Rapso-the poetry of calypso, the power of the word in the “riddum” of the word………
