Three cases are at the core of this study: Anthony "The Mighty Gabby" Carter, Alison Hinds, and Ricardo "Lil' Rick" Reid. By analyzing these Calypso/Soca artists performances utilizing the methodological resonances of the metaphor of masquerade, this study explores the constitution of gendered, classed, raced and sexualized national identities.
