Djembe Drum Clash


Yesterday we attended a Djembe Drum Clash at Emancipation Park. It was a lively event, with families and all sorts of people watching the vigorous drumming. There was also Kumina dancing, a blend of African and Jamaican dancing that originated from freed slaves from the Congo, who came to Jamaica in the 1840s and 1850s.
