At Irie Camp Jamaica, we believe that educating our campers about Jamaican culture can lead to appreciation of what we have. Many people fear Jonkunnu performers, and that fear stems from a lack of context and exposure. Before the performers of the Port Maria Jonkunu group gave their performance, Carlton Walters explained the characters.
Note: We also had the performers share a meal with the kids before they donned their costumes. Watch our other videos to see the kids dancing with the ensemble.
