There is a festival Dec. 1 called Bari. What is this please?

Bari means drum in Papiamentu. It is a time when local groups dress up and parade through the stees playing a barrel drum. The tradition is a bit clouded so instead of me passing on some misinformation, I will check back through some old literature and post what I find out.

Bari is more or less a group playing songs with guys playing a bari(barrel drum), wiri(translation: no idea), and chapi(hoe) and people are singing with lyrics that are sharp remarks towards others.

bari and tambu to my opinion is basicly the same, and yes you are right about the wiri

Thanks Francis, I have noticed before that some words are different between the islands, though they all speak Papiamentu. Up till now I have seen this with musical terms (like Simadán on Bonaire and Seú on Curacao).
