Merry-go-round with wood horses

     Here is a merry-go-round with wood horses as some existed in the past in Martinique. The merry-go-round was driven by men, and to buck them up, an orchestra played a particularly rhythmed music that is called chouval-bwa. This music has been popularized in the Antilles by the singer Dédé Saint-Prix.
