Trini Tuesday- Leh We Go and Dance Parang

Last year I did an informative post about parang music, Trinidad's seasonal tunes. I had no idea about YouTube or imbedding music or any such thing. This year here is a fun one I found. It's an amateur home video but you'll hear some authentic local tunes and see some geniune moves. Enjoy!




Here is a fun one I remember from when we lived in Trinidad. It wouldn't allow embedding but go listen to them sing 'Bring Out De Ham.'

And if you can actually sit in your chair and not have the urge to dance you might want to have someone take your pulse because boy yuh mus' real be dead!

Happy Trini Tuesday!
