island soul on monday off

It's the Island Soul festival at the Harbourfront Centre, and we enjoy the islandy-ness a lot. This year they're celebrating the 50th anniversary of   the independence of both Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago, and lucky us – steel drum gorgeousness!  It's a pleasant and happy vibe and an oh-so-welcome Monday off after an eventful and busy weekend.
