And so we go to the Islands

All Around This World Caribbean "Everywhere Map"

This week in our online class we begin our next grand adventure — a three month tour of the magnificent musics and celebratory cultures of the Caribbean. All Around This World’s Caribbean season of songs celebrates global music in all its joyful, rhythmic and multi-cultural glory, featuring songs about love and rum-running and goats, a Haitian tune about a frog one-upping a horse, a beautiful Bhojpuri lullaby and dance grooves from Puerto Rican plena to Jamaican ska.
