Crop Over~

Every first Monday of August we celebrate the end of our Crop-Over Season with the Grand Kadooment Finale. After months of partying and festivities leading up to this day, the excitement has built up and explodes on 'de road' with local music booming from loud speakers and thousands of 'revellers' going crazy in the streets, wearing nothing but teeny tiny beaded costumes. The weekend before Kadooment is always most hectic; J'ouvert (Mud mass) the Friday,lots of booze cruises, Party Monarch and Cohoblopot the night before. Here's a taste of some of the local music which we'll be hearing on the road tomorrow - imagine people shaking their hips to this at 100 miles an hour!:

Machel Montano - Whistle and Wine

Alison Hinds - Explode

Rupee- I am a Bajan

Lil' Rick - Jones & Wuk Up
