Welcome to this week’s E-PICK. It’s Carnival season in the Caribbean and in Jamaica. It’s the time that Soca music lovers look forward to. And for a few weeks, Carnival music is played more often than usual at events and on the airwaves.
Indians, Chinese, African and Caucasians who live in Jamaica, all attend Carnival activities – there are rarely or never any problems for carnival events to take place. Carnival promoters are given special permission by the authorities to block of sections of roads, then take over the streets with the parade trucks, while droves of people march, wine and revel in the streets to Soca Music from dusk till dawn.
