Taking you from the arrivals of the English and Africans straight through to the colour of Grand Kadooment we present to you through song and dance the exciting, spellbinding story of our music Taking you from the arrivals of the English and Africans
Rhythm forged on the backs of Africans brought from an ocean away forced to practice their culture and traditions in secret have flourished into sounds we know today. This is the story of the Africans’ melodies and sounds fusing with that of their English colonial masters creating new sounds, new instrument and new rhythms.
Tonight we celebrate!
...First, the rhythms of our heritage, as we take a look back to where it all began.
...Then, to The Mill Yard, the rhythm of our work! Where the sounds birthed in the fields fused with steel, metal and string on the plantation yards creating a whole new beat, the sound of work and play.
...Next, to the streets and dance halls where the African rhythms now dance on keyboards and cowbells. In the 70s it gave us the Sound of Spouge a uniquely Barbadian beat. Then fast forward to the 90s where Raga Soca beats breathed new life into modern day Soca music.
...And finally, to Tuk, the sound of the festival where the instruments of the Scottish Fife and Drum marching band play African rhythms to create our indigenous sound. The sound synonymous with; Mother Sally, Shaggy Bears and the Donkey Man.
To complete the circle, we celebrate the Rhythm and sounds of Grand Kadooment where dancers in carnival costume answer the call of the Steel Drums as we celebrate in true Bajan fashion.
…Come see the rhythm evolve right before your eyes!!!
