Definition of Kumina in English:
A Jamaican religious ceremony involving music, dancing, and supposed possession by spirits.
- African-Caribbean religious practices such as revivalism, Kumina, and Rastafarianism have especially significant African influences.
- Another important point is that in this text myal is a combination of various religious practices, including Myalism and Kumina, which aims to exorcise sources of evil from both within and without the community.
Perhaps from a Kimbundu word meaning 'possession, to see'.
