The beach at Pirate’s Cove came alive on Saturday with the sound of Tuk Band music as well as the sights of the Mother Sally.
Tourists dressed in their swimwear thoroughly enjoyed the music emerging from the instruments of Ruk A Tuk Inc. with some of them even attempting to go down to ‘lowtown’ with the Mother Sallies.
President of the Small Business Association and Founder of Ruk A Tuk Inc. Wayne Poonka Willock said the idea to have the Tuk Band music was a part of the I am Tourism initiative.
“Ruk A Tuk Inc. was invited to be a part of this activity. For over 20 years, we have been involved in tourism. I think it is just wonderful to see the guests participating and reacting to what we are doing as our natural Bajan culture,” Willock said. He added that, “This is the life of Barbados, Tuk Band, Mother Sallies and next time we would probably have Shaggy Bears and stuff like that. We just really enjoyed this, and it is Christmas time and Tuk Band time,” he told Barbados TODAY.
Some of the tourists followed the Tuk Band and the Mother Sallies along Pirates Cove armed with their cellular phones to capture the moment. One lady visiting the island attempted to try some of the moves being showcased. She truly enjoyed the experience.
The members of Ruk A Tuk Inc. continued dancing and performing along Pirates Cove and culminated at Brown’s Beach. (LG)
