A Video Montage of the Faces of Curacao
On the Caribbean island of Curacao the indigenous music is known as Tumba. Of African origin, the music has evolved since it was introduced on the island in the 17th century and today reflects Latin and Jazz influences. I was lucky enough to attend Curacao’s annual Tumba Festival, where scores of musicians compete for the title of Tumba King. Enjoy some of the high energy exuberance and smiling faces I experienced!
