The 2016 BAS London Notting Hill J’ouvert Bomb Tune Results

Twelve years since its revival, London Jouvert celebrations saw Ladbroke Grove invaded by revellers adorning themselves in mud, powder or brightly coloured paint depicting the celebration of emancipation. The pre-dawn tranquillity broken by the sweet strains of steel band music in West London and masses of people chipping down the Grove in true Trinidadian style.  

This all steelband event, provides lively steel band music, which is well received by the public and is constantly growing in popularity. The British Association of Steelbands continue to work laboriously to ensure its growth is sustained through the inclusion of more steelbands and masqueraders and maintain its status of being an important ingredient of the cultural fabric of Notting Hill Carnival.

The celebration started with the procession leaving the Sainsbury’s car park at the top end of Ladbroke Grove around 6:15 a.m.  This late start gave the rhythm section a chance to keep the crowd entertained with their pulsating beats. The steelbands snake along Ladbroke Grove as the revellers swelled to great numbers filling the air with a mist of powder and flour whilst covering each other with brightly coloured paint. The London Jouvert celebrations saw steelbands and the traditional rhythm section playing along Ladbroke Grove and turning around at the bottom of the Grove and returning to Sainsbury’s car park.  

Real Steel, Ebony and London All Stars had the revellers chipping down the Grove in true Trini style to the sweet strains of steelband music coupled with the copious amounts of alcohol they consumed. That combination certainly had them enjoying themselves fully.

The Future of London Jouvert

When the celebration ended at 9:00 a.m. the revellers are always begging for more. Everyone is looking forward to more successful Jouvert celebrations in the future and BAS continues to work laboriously to ensure its growth is sustained through closer working relationships with the various Carnival partners/entities
