Elimu Carnival band has been going since 1980, so there are many stories that can be told.

This project is about finding out and recording the history and heritage of the band.

We have set up a Young Elimu Heritage Group and members of this Group have photographed and interviewed members of the band, conducted a survey in order to find out more about their own history and, hopefully, help to pass it on to the next generation.

We have collected many T-shirts of the band since 1980 and several parts of costumes plus photographs of the Elimu family at various Carnivals.

For every year since 1980, we hope to be able to collect or capture something that reminds us of the Carnival in that year.
