We began through this site highlighting the contributions and impact of Orisa devotees of Trinidad & Tobago on the Trinidad & Tobago Carnival.
As we continue to highlight the contributions we wish to indicate that KAMBULE a production of Orisa devotee Pearl Eintou Springer,IS NOW A PART OF THE PRE – CARNIVAL DAYS EVENTS AND LANDSCAPE that many persons now look forward to. It has not been an easy task to make this impact upon our Carnival landscape, but Agba Pearl Eintou Springer has engaged the battle with the confidence and determination that our women have often demonstrated in our social and political struggles. Agba Eintou has battled the “Establishment Forces” like many other women warriors that include inter alia NANA YAA ASANTEWAA – Queen Mother of Ejisu in the Ashanti Empire; HARRIET TUBMAN; YEYE GBOGBO MELVINA RODNEY; IYALORISA SUTHERLAND; IYA IJO LOUISA CATHERINE TOUSSAINT; IYALORISA HILARY CATHGRANT GEORGE; and many others.
