nope. But like most of the others the concept was started by a Trinidadian. It just so happens to be particularly Jamaican/Dancehall oriented NOW. And most UK dance music is tinged West Indian and thus Calypsonian anyway. Calypso being one of the more influential genres from the region.

Jamaica,

(Barbados discontinued its Carnival for many years and when they brought it back it for tourism dollars... it looked different somehow. To this day they complain why are so many mass leaders/designers in Cropover Trinidadian.) Basically most places in the Caribbean with less french heritage have a lot of Trinidadian elements to their Carnival.

And then you add up all of those Carnivals that happen in cities up the east coast of the US.

And then you think about the fact that many French-Influenced Carnivals have moved to the summer from the original February/March/Pre-Lent dates so as not to compete with Trinidad for tourists (St. Lucia for example) and you must concede that those Carnivals borrow too because if T&Ts was so good, you know they were going to find out why.

As far as I know, Carnivals that I like andattend came from Trinidad...

however a "patent" on "carnival" is NOT POSSIBLE!!!!
in a fact if you want to kill trini carnival from around the globe - bring up this idea to the carnival sponsors

All British West Indian carnivals besides Dominica is HEAVILY modeled and influenced by Trinidad & Tobago, thats a fact

Fella that is just not true. What does Trinidad opening of carnuval look like? Calypso isn't the biggest highlight in Trinidad carnival.

Oh goodness...Swagger always coming up with nonsense.

Half of those Carnivals are not really like T&T...in fact, yuh insulting T&T with that mess.

As for other ones in the Caribbean, they have plenty of their own traditions...so just stop.

Also agree that USVI Carnival is NOT like Trinidad. St. Thomas Jouvert is not dutty...no oil, mud, powder etc. unless that came in the last 3 years. Pan isn't as interwoven. It's just different.

Jabjab is not limited to Grenada, Carib2, but Grenada is just unique with it.
