Junkanoo has other variations in spelling such as ‘Jankunu’, ‘Jonkonnu’ (called John Canoe by the British) is a band of masqueraders (typically referred to as ‘muskorate’ meaning ‘masquerade’) which usually perform in towns and villages at Christmas time.

After emancipation the tradition continued and junkanoo evolved from simple origins to a formal, organised parade with intricate costumes and themed music.
