When you think of Jamaican cuisine, certain dishes come to mind right away—jerk chicken, rice and peas, curried goat, ackee and saltfish.. and they come to mind for a reason: they’re delicious.

Words by Marcha M. Johnson—

doubles-tabanca-bunji-garlin

Initially inspired by a frequently misheard “Differentology” lyric, parodies of Bunji’s 2013 and 2014 contributions have kept coming, including the hilarious “Cow on D Road”  spoof by DJ Righteous. It’s not all jokes, though: A$AP Ferg recently released his version of “Carnival Tabanca” called “Petit Valley,” paying homage to both Trinidad and its beautiful women.
