Tumba Festival (70 images)
The word Tumba originates from the word "Tambú." Around the beginning of the last century, it started out as a double dance in binary measure -- an outline in which the authors put rumors to music. The slaves expressed their sorrow and frustration this way. Currently, the Tumba Festival is a four-day musical event where the best local composers, singers, and bands compete to have their piece selected as the year's official Carnival road march Tumba song.
