Theme announcement for Rotterdam Carnival 2020 (Zomercarnaval)

First off we would like to wish everybody an abundance of blessings in love, health and prosperity for the year 2020! Last year we revealed the revelation between Angels & Jab Jab. We’ve learned that no matter how different we might think we are amongst each other, we all bleed the same color as we are all one, one human race. Zomercarnaval 2019 made it clear that we must start to behave in such matter and start uniting as one to build a better future for ourselves and our generations to come.

This year for Awókey Mas Freedom Limerz it’s all about strength, unity and transparency. It’s clear that the time has now arrived to unite and start building. It’s Crystal Clear! Therefor after our successful participation with Rotterdam carnival last year we’re proud and grateful to present to you our theme for Zomercarnaval 2020: “The Crystal Kingdom”. The crystal kingdom represents a unity amongst the people. A Unity based on a common interest, strength and trust.

Costume for Awókey Mas 2019 at Zomercarnaval Rotterdam

This year’s theme for Rotterdam Carnival events is “The Revelation of Angels and Jab Jab”. The theme is based on the Chinese Philosophy of Yin and Yang and is inspired by a combination of the modern day Caribbean carnival aspects as well as the more traditional Jab Molassie culture better known in Grenada as Jab Jab.

The principle of Yin and Yang is that all things exist as contradictory yet inseparable opposites, for example, female-male, dark-light and old-young. The idea behind this year’s theme is to inspire people to look at the “GOOD” aspects of life more critical whilst being more open and understanding to all the “BAD” aspect of life. The most important part of the Yin and Yang symbol is the swirling effect between the two energy fields. It represents the illusion of duality (separation), once we accept both opposites as a whole will find peace and balance in life.
