Here is a souvenir of the good old days. This was the time when Carnival in Haiti requires masks to be part of it.
We would like some input from those who have been there during that time. Please let me know what you see as different today from the days when such band like Difficiles, Gypsies and many others of the old generation were participating in Haiti Carnival
