Against great odds: Carnival in Jamaica

Neither the death of its greatest supporter, nor the financial problems and the official cancelation, nor the highjacking of an airplane at the same weekend were able to stop Jamaicans to celebrate a colourful mas with lots of soca music last weekend. Bacchanal Jamaica took place against great odds – it seems like the spirit of the late founder and supporter of the Jamaican carnival, Byron Lee, lives on and made this possible.
There were performances from the likes of Alison Hinds, Destra Garcia, Imij & Co. and Denise “Saucy Wow” Belfon on the Bacchanal stage.
