About the artists....

Bob Heath and Alastair Price began their Carnival arts and musical journey back in the 1980’s.

Bob is a painter, musician and carnival artist, whilst Alastair works for Horse and Bamboo, currently as director of their Making a Change programme. After years abroad, they both found themselves back in the UK, and in 2013 Bob invited Al to be part of a new project, Cacophany Arkestra, drawing together both their carnival arts and musical experiences.
