Welcome to the Traditional Mas Archive, a resource for exploring carnival masquerade and the traditional carnival characters of Trinidad & Tobago. The archive preserves and grants public access to Mas artists and experts through video interviews. We also have pages dedicated to each of the traditional carnival characters. Combined with citations from major publications and research notes, we attempt to contextualize historical masquerade performance. Designed to celebrate and enable mas players, artists, educators, students, and Carnival enthusiasts, the Traditional Mas Archive is an entirely free resource. We’re always trying to do better.
