Junkanoo Jam Session Part One - Jamaica

The Know Your Caribbean Podcast

Dec 1 2022 • 39 mins

Junkanoo is an African centred festival found across many areas in the Caribbean, Central America and even parts of the USA. Found specifically during Christmas time, like much of our masquerade it is rooted in resistance, African spiritual and cultural practice and anti-colonial intent. Dying in some areas and flourishing in others. For part one of our Junkanoo Jam Sessions we head to the root of Junkanoo - Jamaica. Here we uncover the history and spiritual significance of a dying Jamaican Christmas time culture.
