To know what is a Kadooment Band is subjective to the costume Designer's imagination. The creation of costumes for Kadooment Bands in Barbados is an influential tool for self-expression. It allows the costume designer the freedom to explore and interpret their environment and culture, while the revelers become masqueraders of the art-form.
A Band House or Mas Camp is where the costumes are made and distributed for Kadooment.
