Since the 1960s, every summer thousands of people party and parade through the streets of Notting Hill in West London. For a weekend, sound systems, steel bands, samba schools and Afro-Caribbean music fill the streets around Portobello. In feather samba dresses, carnival costumes or simple mini-shorts, people dance with abandon under a blazing sun.


Tous les étés depuis les années 60, des milliers de personnes emplissent le quartier de Notting Hill à l'ouest de Londres. Le temps d'un week-end, sound systems, steel bands, écoles de samba et musiques afro-caribéennes, ambiancent les rues de Portobello. Costumes à plumes et paillettes ou simple mini-shorts, on danse sans complexe sous un soleil de plomb.
