Dancing in Jamaica - level 1, A12

This video is from Jamaica. This video is from a funeral. One lady died. Her grandsons dance at her funeral. For some people, it is not normal, but in Jamaica it is OK. People dance when they say goodbye to good people.

People say, the Bible says that we can be not happy when somebody dies. And we can also be happy when somebody dies because he or she lived a good life. The men in the video are not happy that their grandmother died. They loved her very much. They dance because she lived very long.

Written by David for News in Levels
