Preview of tomorrow’s Limón gala parade. Chill out with some Calypso and reggae music.
The showcase of the annual Limon Roots 2010 festival begins tomorrow (Aug. 31) with a gala parade through the streets of Limón on the Caribbean coast.
Two Afro-Caribbean staples of these festivities will be Calypso music and reggae songs. At a recent press conference, these musical performances were previewed. Take a look at what’s in store.
Calypso trio Yes a Man sang a classic number called “Matilda.”
Costa Rican reggae star Michael Livingston performed his own song.
Costa Rica’s Black Culture day is celebrated every year on the last day of August.
