Music is one of the most popular and dynamic aspects of Caribbean expressive culture. As Caribbean music has evolved from its contemporary forms, it has developed a rich variety of styles. From the well-known genres - salsa, merengue, reggae, calypso and bachata - to more localised forms like chutney and kaseko, this wide-ranging book surveys Caribbean music's prodigious diversity and colorful history.
