another interesting caribbean tradition is the garifuna and here: garifuna network The Garifuna
people are Black Caribs descended from passengers who escaped
a slave ship which went aground, and the local native Carib
and Awarak people form the Island where the ship was wrecked.
Many re-settled central america and they have a style of music which blends
african, hispanic and caribbean influences, yet has its own distinctive
cultural significance.
