Carribean dancers in the grounds of Greenwich Castle

Dancers at Greenwich Festival, summer 2011
Both images: Caribbean Dancers at Greenwich Festival 2011

Looking back for images of warm bright weather I found these, part of one of many performances at Greenwich Festival in the grounds of Greenwich Castle. They were billed as Caribbean dancers which I feel is a bit of a cop-out. I think the dance being performed here is Bamboula, which while now performed in the British Virgin Islands was more widespread in the early 1800s.
