Sticks by Central Bank

As part of International Museum Day 2019, Sticks in de Yard—along with Tekel ‘Salti’ Sylvan, Jada ( #jadarocks ) and Carnival Queen 2019, Shynel Brizan—were all invited to teach and perform in the courtyard of the Central Bank, Port of Spain.

Daniel Bascombe, Kriston ‘Fearless Leader’ Chen, and Shaun Rambaran were on hand to teach the approximately two dozen young persons who wished to try walking stick. Tassa drummers and a small steelband also were present to exhibit their respective disciplines.

The Central Bank Money Museum was first opened in December 2004 and displays historical currency of Trinidad and Tobago as well as items from the past of the Central Bank itself.
