Another Diplomat release. This time we visit Trinidad with the “Caribbeanas” and “Lord Rhumbago.” They didn’t even bother spelling their made-up band name correctly on the cover. Truly the height of indifference! The music is pleasant though. I have a few “Limbo” albums, and this one is the best of the lot.
Instructions: “You can dance the Limbo to the dynamic music of the Caribbeans by simply placing a 6 ft. bamboo pole or dowel rod between two upright supports, with a provision for the gradual lowering of the pole after each passage of the dancers. The last dancer to pass beneath the pole without touching the floor with any part of the body other than the feet is crowned the King or Queen of the Limbo. ”
If you are feeling extra adventurous, you can set the pole on fire like a true Limbo professional.
