“Ay Zuzuma” — Goin’ to Town in Jamaica

“Ay Zuzuma” is a Jamaican children’s circle game in which a man goes to town to go to the market and leaves his wife at home to make lunch, asking her to mind the pig and cow while he’s gone. When he returns she tells him all the things she’s cooked for him – corn, pork and saltfish. Yum? In the current “Everything is a Drum” season of our online class use egg shakers to accent a reggae beat. No pigs, cows or egg shakers were harmed in the making of this music.
