Like so many, we’re facing hardships, unfairness, barriers, and a pandemic, yet we’re still rising in the to the Occasion. Rise as Kamala Harris, a Jamaican descendent, becomes U.S. vice President, As the organizer of the Democratic party Campaign, a political pundit and political analyst joins the Biden Administration as a staff chief alongside Vice President Kamal Harris, rise as Winston Duke plays Marcus Mosiah Garvey in a new film, step up as we become judges, priests, lawyers, nurses, teachers, activists, and whatever profession you may think of. We’re telling our tale of a rich culture, vibrant people, and reckoning.

Music from the Caribbean represents the multi-cultural influences that have affected the Caribbean and the world. The Caribbean has established a music infrastructure that comprises church halls, performing arts institutes, recording corporations, radio stations and TV networks that will revolutionize your world by mixing seductive sounds that’s interwoven in the culture and history of many Caribbean islands.

Jamaica is home to ska, reggae, and dancehall, while soca and calypso came from Trinidad & Tobago, just to name a few. There is an increasing country-to-country crossover of music genres. Music remains at the foundation of Caribbean history so that you can hear familiar tunes but also learn new ones at the same time. From festival drums and steel pans, loud rhythms bursting from clubs and pubs, and bands performing at concerts and festivals, you’ll see that music is consequently part of our legacy.

Our Culture/Heritage is a great learning experience. While these traditions are distinct and frequently diametrically opposed, many aspects are linked to the Caribbean’s shared geopolitical quandary in North America and around the world. The Caribbean comedy exhibits some patterns. Examples include drama, comedy, politics, religion, and comedy. Our food is an enormously important heritage component. There is street or fast food everywhere around the world, from beach shacks selling fresh seafood to jerk huts serving various island cuisine to natural juices, island food in upscale restaurants worldwide. Caribbean cuisine offers all the favorite dishes cooked with island spices and colorful ingredients.

While adhering to the Covid standards, we must not forget who we are or neglect to respect our Caribbean leaders. As a people, we must position ourselves to bear the baton and continue to address difficulties and problems we may encounter. We must continue to do right via advocacy and lobbying, improve our communities and not forget to continue praying, especially for our future generation of children.
