J’ouvert (pronounced “Jou-vay”) is derived from French patois and means ‘daybreak’. Jouvert marks the official start of carnival celebrations. The first revelers hit the streets – jumping, dancing, shouting – abetted, it must be admitted, by the fine local rum, but fueled more by the exhilaration of the occasion. Most revelers usually join sections in which hundreds of people party together with the vibrant sounds of the so-called “engine room” which is comprised of a “core” set of instruments, including the brake iron (discarded car brake drums), shak-shak (shaker), scratcher (a metal guiro), toc-toc (claves), cowbell, and bottle and spoon, drum set, congas, and occasional other instruments as part of the engine room. The brake iron is played with a metal rod to produce a high-pitched sound.

Enter the Miami Rhythm Section in collaboration with the China Mas Group. We are one of a number of Caribbean Carnival Mas bands participating in the Miami-Broward 2013 Jouvert infusion into the cultural consciousness of the South Florida Caribbean Diaspora. Part and parcel of Jouvert is rhythm and steel–The miami Rhythm section represents the so called “engine room” referenced above.
