Gombey Troupes Celebrate Boxing Day

December 26, 2018 | 1 Comment

As has been the tradition for many years, the Gombeys are out making their Boxing Day rounds today [Dec 26], helping the island celebrate the holiday season.

The island’s preeminent folk art, Gombeys traditionally span the island on Boxing Day and other holidays with the groups growing larger through the day as Bermudians start following along and dancing to the rhythmic beat of the drums.
