Chanté mas (masquerade song) is a form of Carnival music of Dominica. It is performed by masequerading partygoers in a two-day parade, in a call-and-response format. Lyrics are usually topical, and revolve around local rumors and gossip. The chanté mas tradition has been largely supplanted by calypso music..
