Paranging in Lopinot

December 10, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm

HikerSpirit does not only bring you Eco tours but we want to give you a cultural experience, so Come Parang with us. Join us as we head to Lopinot Village to experience a musical tradition mainly heard during Christmas time in Trinidad.💃🇹🇹

“During the Christmas season, the land of soca and calypso transforms into a country united by parang music. Derived from the Spanish word “parranda” meaning “a spree or fête”, parang bands in Trinidad embody this translation with lively and colourful performances that exude the festivity of the season.
In recent times, there has been an emergence of soca parang which is an energetic mix of traditional parang and the tempo of Trini soca that even the harshest music critic will enjoy.💃
