Cultural Explosion

-A Cultural Explosion-

I had an eventful weekend, went to all types of events and shows.

The man caught my attention, most people can't play two flutes at once. He is part of a parang group.
Parang is a type of music with Caribbean and Latin American cultural influences. The word is derived from the Spanish word parranda, meaning 'merry-making' or 'a group of serenaders'. Parang is a popular folk music of Trinidad and Tobago, it is part of the Island's Hispanic heritage that originated from over 400 years ago during Spanish rule in Venezuela.

-Moko Jumbies-

Moko Jumbies are stilt walkers or dancers. The origin of the term may come from "Moko" (a possible reference to an African god) and "jumbi", a west Indian term for a ghost or spirit that may have been derived from the Kongo language word zumbi. The Moko Jumbies are thought to originate from West African tradition brought to the Caribbean. Thanks

Dont worry more pictures to come

Have a Nice Day
