Lesson 10: Barbados

[/wpspoiler]

This week in music class we head to Barbados, an island that was a British colony for three hundred years, and today promotes itself as a place to “Discover. Dream. Enjoy.” That sounds lovely.

OVERVIEW:  If you’re really old-school you’ll call it Ichiroughanaim….

LANGUAGE: The Bajan language is good good good.

WHEN YOU GO THERE:  A visit to naturally glorious Barbados will take you back into the island’s colonial past.

LANDSHIP: A unique and complex African-Barbadian tradition that mimics the British navy as it simultaneously references West African folk life and the Middle Passage.
