FIRST GLANCE OF "INDIA ,STORY OF BOYIE"










Looking at the preview picture that Saucy had on her blog of Brian MacFarlane’s India, one can almost see the story of boyie take shape before you.
These designs seem to show a lot of blue and white in them, the first two without a doubt the African element of the story, the “other set” of migrants that Boyie (Pariag?) encounters when he got to Trinidad.



The traditional limbo dancer style costume for the male, and the traditional female bel-air type costume that has been used very often in carnival. The next two are obviously the subject of the theme, the Indian element the male in a turban the females head piece all in an Indian (or Indian-ish)style.



See the motif in both sections, not only a blue white finish but an ocean or sea feel, you see these two sections could be united by the Atlantic, that brought them both to Trinidad, a “Jahaaji Bhai” as it were.



The red last costume looks like an Indian dancer, but the headpiece throws me, it looks Indian-ish, but is it?
Because I seem to get more of a Thai feel from its structure but i am no expert.
Does any one out there care to guess what might have influenced that style headpiece?
Any how i waiting for the rest ........
