THE CARNIVAL OF GUYANA
Another way to tell the country's story
In Guiana, the carnival brings together all ethnic communities for over a month.
From Epiphany to Ash Wednesday, Creoles, Amerindians, Chinese, Brazilians, Haitians, and Metropolitans live to the rhythm of the preparations and parades.
For several weeks, on the pavements of Cayenne, the seafront of Kourou, or in the dance halls, men and women of all origins come together in masked balls that tell, always in music, the chaotic history of their territory.
