Dutty Wine

Standard

Jamaicans are known worldwide for the creation of various dance moves for almost every song that is hot on the charts. From the ska to the della move, to the world dance, to the batty rider, to the gangster rock, to the pon di river, pon di bank and now … the latest dance craze appropriately named, THE DUTTY WINE. As you can see, it takes some amount of skill to do this dance.

One of the cable channels, Juice TV, had a Dutty Wine contest and I was amazed at the extent to which some of these women dutty wined for a T-Shirt, phone credit and a gift basket. It was reported that one woman actually broke her neck doing this dance. The more explicit versions see women going down almost flat on their stomachs with ass (and more) in the air executing the moves with such energy and enthusiasm, that you would think their life depended on it.

I find the dance quite interesting myself and would love to try doing it one day. I really like my neck though πŸ™‚

More time.

  1. It seems that some “men” and I use the term loosely, have gotten into the “dutty wine” act….so much so that the ladies have to be asking them to stop and leave “woman tings” alone.
    Go figure!

  2. eh – like the matrix that dance is for the young or very flexible. i think there was also some video going around with a girl losing her weave doing it, too.
