Few influences on New York’s cultural life are as overt and glorious as the traditions brought here by people from the Caribbean. New York’s connection to the West Indies can be found in every part of the city’s Black and social life, but it’s most noticeable in the wealth of its sounds — reggae and dancehall, calypso and soca, kompa and zouk — many of which have ingrained themselves into the local flavors of jazz, disco, hip-hop, house and creative music. This episode of CityFM is dedicated to the Caribbean explores both what happens around the big West Indian Day parade, and what happens in the city all year long.
