Congregation of Characters

29 August 2012

A group of Shortknee congregate near the water's edge, singing their call-and-response songs, and scattering powder onto those who ignore their $1 EC tax.

Hi Joshua
They don't intimidate like some of the jab jabs! and most people don't even know about the payment of coins for the historic information they chant! A dying art form, unique almost to Grenada alone! this year thre were wonderful bands of kids as well!
