We, Carib Beings, love our flags, riddims, bass and whining our waists! And, CARNIVAL is one of the many ways in which celebrate our culture!
Recently, a friend asked me "what is the history behind carnival?" and "Where did it start?". Being that Carnival has been a part of my life since I was a child, I didn't give its origins much thought. All I knew was it was tons of fun; a day spent dancing and eating great food with my family! Naturally, I wasn't going to leave my friend hanging so I did some digging.
Watch today's video for a brief history of CARNIVAL and clips from my jump-up in the LA Caribbean Carnival this weekend. ENJOY :)
