Palancing in Kingston!

 The ‘little carnival that could’ – Jamaica Carnival, would have wrapped up today in Kingston. 

In the face of all resistance from many in JA society who decry Carnival as slackness (including, ironically, many supporters of the dancehall community) and lick out against it, Ja carnival keeps pressing on and growing. 

One of the best nights of JA Carnival is Jouvert – and even though Islandista is more partial to Joker’s Wild Jouvert than Bacchanal Jamaica, these pics from Socia Lingua of Bacchanal’s Jouvert on Friday night, kinda make us wish we were there!

one who follows a principle; an adept.

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
