Via TEDxBermuda : The Gombey is a Bermudian cultural icon that has it's origins in both African and Native American rhythms and costumes.

The Troupe currently has 24 members consisting of 9 musicians and 15 dancers, ranging in age from 4 years to 60+ years. The captain is Harley Place and the Junior-captain is Sakima Richards. The Troupe has performed in many places outside of Bermuda, including several Native American powwows through ancestral connections with the Pequot Tribe.
