On a trip to Jamaica I discovered I really like reggae music. But, Finnish Reggae? Who imagined? Apparently the Finnish music has similar rhythms to Reggae and so musician Darrell Syria has combined the two for his band Conga Se Menne. He is 100% Finnish and spends many of his evenings touring with his band. In the daytime he drives a bus in order to get insurance and other benefits. His wife is a member of our church and went on the temple trip with us. As a result, we discovered some great music and went to a free concert in a nearby town -- one of many he was giving that week. Unfortunately it was moved into the community center from the park due to rain. As you can see, Jackie dressed up in her concert attire (outfit given to her by Grammy Lamby) and enjoyed the show.
