Dancing in Jamaica - level 3, A12
This video is from Jamaica. This video was filmed at a funeral of one lady. Her grandsons were dancing at her funeral. For some people it can be a little bit strange but this is the way Jamaican people say goodbye to somebody who left their lives.
People say that the Bible says that we should both celebrate and be sad when somebody dies. The men in the video are celebrating their grandmother’s life. They are not happy that she died. They loved her and cared for her. They are dancing because she lived so long and was healthy for so many years.
