CARNIVAL IN LONDON


The Notting Hill Carnival is a symbol of London's multi-cultural status. It began with the Abolition of Slavery Act (abolición de la esclavitud) in 1833 when the first carnival was celebrated in Trinidad. Caribbean’s took to the streets and celebrated with songs, dance and costumes. During the 1950’s the West Indian immigrants brought their traditions with them to England. The Carnival found a home in Notting Hill in 1964. This carnival has the strong Caribbean style of its origins: Steel Drums, Calypso and Soca music ring through the streets. There are extravagant costumes, floats and dancing. It is a symbol of London’s multi-cultural status. Click HERE to watch a video.
Did you like it? Is it very different from the Carnival in Bollullos?

In fact chari if the carnaval in bollullos is very different. here the caranaval is used to humiliate to the others to speak bad of the politicians and for to use to the people like animals.

I feel it for being so dramtic but in fact it is fact.

Thanks a lot for your comment. I'd like to keep it up, but it looks like it's going to take some time to get this type of activities to work in my new school. Time will tell...
By the way, who are you...?
