Louis Saldenah proudly announced Louis Saldenah Mas-K Club is #2 in the Caribana 2009 parade. I can imagine how pleased they are to be back (from #8 in '08) at their usual spot in the front. Being one of the first 3-5 bands out of the CNE is extremely important to having a decent time on the road.
Their presentation for Caribana 2K9 is A Tribute to Harold Saldenah. Harold “SALLY” Saldenah was Louis legendary father who won (Trinidad) Band of the Year 6 times in the 1950's and 60's. Check out his interesting history on National Carnival Bands Association of Trinidad & Tobago. Based on his presentations featuring among other things vikings, sailors, warriors, or native indians, I can't wait to see what is produced in tribute to him for this year!
