A storm quite tame - J'ouvert 2009

3canal’s J'ouvert began quietly and built up to a tame and orderly dawn fête mixed with paint and mud. No one left unscathed as a light war of colour factions pelted globs of paint into the air. Some masqueraders ran for cover and others surrendered peacefully tempered by a rhythm section and an army of willing drones who inseminate sweat on sweat by an all out ritual wine.

Masqueraders please do not hang on to the truck
