    The booming music from cowbells, goat skin drums, and brass sections fills the streets and serves as a soundtrack to the holidays here in The Bahamas. Junkanoo is an annual parade where dancers and musicians don single-use costumes made from scratch out of crepe paper, cardboard, and wire. Junkanoo, with its roots in West African traditions, serves as a source of cultural identity and national pride for all Bahamians young and old.

    Love the expression in his eyes as he plays in this parade. Brass instruments take a lot out of the performer so it's great to see this musician putting all he's got into this performance. Great work!
