Catholicism’s spread into Ireland… Portuguese imperialism… importation of African dance… Catholicism again… it all exploded to a drum beat as the last 1,500 years of Western Civ was perhaps unintentionally played out at Inferknow’s Green Day 2008 at Portuguese Hall where Jameson Irish Whiskey and Samba Na Chuva clashed happily.
