Meet our Tribe Family

'Papa Twel'

Mr. Adrian Augier


SINCE being formed in 2015, Tribe of Twel has proven to be a dominant force in the Carnival fray. ‘Twel’, the creole word for ‘cloth’, was borne out of unflattering comments made by many who often complained that Rituals Carnival Band used ‘twop twel’ (too much cloth) to make their costumes. It turns out that:

  • TWEL is… cut from a different cloth among carnival bands in more ways than one

  • TWEL is… a revival of the lost art of making your own Mas

  • TWEL is… a new carnival movement dedicated to individual and collective creativity

  • TWEL is… for people who like to make the Mas they play and play the Mas they make

  • TWEL is… an opportunity to rediscover and release your creative self

  • TWEL is… a cooperative carnival band with ownership by members and for members

  • TWEL is… a carnival collaboration uniting talents from Rituals, St. Lucian Spirit and XS Energy

We enjoy input and output … We celebrate process and product… We explore … We create …  We love what we do


Eager to LEARN …willing to SHARE … ready to LEAD

MAS’ comes THROUGH us not just TO us.

to REVEL creatively and responsibly … to play MEANINGFUL MAS … to INSPIRE others … to MAKE the MAS we PLAY and PLAY the MAS we make.
