December 26, 2012

Boxing Day in Bermuda is never complete without the sounds of the Gombeys, and various troupes have started making their way around the island late this morning [Dec 26]. The island’s preeminent folk art, Gombeys traditionally span the island on Boxing Day with the groups growing larger through the day as Bermudians start following along and dancing to the rhythmic beat of the drums.

      I hope to hell we never send these clowns to go away to promote Bermuda ….we tried this before !!!!and it failed … the gombeys are a bunch of noise makers…..Bermuda deserves better than this kind of advertising!!!!The only hope in hell that Bermuda has is to form a tourism board and the sooner the better…..and PLEASE …put Tony Brannon in charge of this board..he is the only one qualified to get us back on track.

        You obviously have no RESPECT for Bermuda and its only true culture I suggest you (small minded person) research our history and see how far my Culture goes back and the laws that to this day bind my heritage. How dear you insult any culture that is still true to its roots. If my culture and heritage bothers you that much I suggest you find another place to line.

        And by the way my culture is so rear my gombey group has seen many parts of the world representing bermuda @ss H0le. Now I ask what have you DONE FOR BERMUDA LATLEY

        • Clive Spate says:

          I like the Gombeys but they are a part of Bermuda’s culture not it’s only true culture and to suggest so indicates you are as small minded as Webster.

    You have just revieled yourself and your Race.
    I gather that your one of those people that believe that if it’s not of European culture than it’s not right.
    I seems to me that you would rather see people with white sheets over there heads burning a cross or a bunch of drunks at a beach celebrating Christmas with booze other than men of color wearing colorful outfit’s dancing.
    Oh’ by the way my 4 white American guest enjoyed them and said they were great.

    I have no problem with the Gombeys, however, at 10pm at night when I’ve just managed to get the babies down to sleep – frak me! Took an age to get them back to sleep :-(
