Who, What is K-Paya?! Well, I had the same question.
K-Paya is an expressive word/phrase coined by the team that is bringing a band of the same name to Miami Carnival, touching the road for the first time in 2019.
I wanted to know what makes them unique, and what makes them think they can deliver and satisfy groups of party-savvy masqueraders. So I sat down with one of the band's founders, Junior Jangalee and he told me.
Junior was very engaging, and I came to find out they did have some chops to support their claim to creating a unique carnival experience. They've been putting on the successful Ren Antz Miami Carnival Jouvert for years, (not affiliated with Red Ants Trinidad). So with that as a solid foundation, they put together a team of carnival-connoisseurs to bring you guys something a little different from the rest.
As they say "every bamsee have a bench" translation: There is something for everyone! And K-Paya is bringing a little extra something to fill a void on the Miami Carnival circuit.
