The Caribbean, a crescent-shaped group of islands stretching from the tip of Florida south to Venezuela, is one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse regions in the world. Coming from Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe, its people have created musical styles found nowhere else. Jamaica's reggae and ska, Trinidad's calypso and soca, Puerto Rico's bomba and plena, Cuba's mambo and cha-cha-chá, and many other styles were born in this musically potent area. Below is a listening list of CDs available at your Glendale Public Library.
