by Josean Jacobo & Tumbao

¨Cimarronaje¨ was a process that was lived in the Caribbean, consisting of the escape of black slaves to the mountains where they took refuge and formed societies in which they mixed their customs from Africa with the customs they learned from their Spanish masters and those mixtures were the basis of what today is, in our case, the Dominican culture.
