Bacchanal Jamaica

Wednesday, January 15, 2014 (All day)

Ocho Rios sees its share of excitement during carnival season in April with Bacchanal Jamaica hosting a mad soca bashment at Chukka Cove. Bacchanal hosts a series of events during Jamaica's carnival season, which runs from mid-January through Easter. Bacchanal Jamaica is composed of three Mas bands in the Trinidadian tradition--Oakridge, Revelers, and Raiders--which have promoted parties since carnival festivities began in Jamaica in 1989. While soca music is not Jamaica's most popular, being more indigenous to Trinidad and Tobago or even Barbados, during Jamaica's carnival season it takes center stage at events produced by the group.
