For a tiny island, Trinidad has certainly birthed an impressive number of musical genres. Like other Caribbean nations we’ve visited, Trinidadian musicians mix African and European melodies, rhythms and forms, though in Trinidad, East Indian influences come into play too. Trinidadian musical styles include, in rough chronological order:

CALYPSO:

CHUTNEY:

STEEL PAN:

— PARANG:
