Calypso - Festivities from Trinidad
Calypso music is a festive, upbeat style of Afro-Caribbean music which originated in Trinidad and Tobago, in the West Indies, which incorporates musical traditions from Africa and Europe. Traditional calypso instruments include trumpet, trombone, flute, saxophone, bass guitar, conga, bongos, steelpan, violin and miscellaneous percussion.



Steel Drums - The Quintessential Caribbean Sound
Steelpan, also known as steeldrums or pans, is a musical instrument and a form of music originating in Trinidad and Tobago. The pan is a pitched percussion instrument, tuned chromatically (although some toy or novelty steelpans are tuned diatonically), made from a 55 gallon drum of the type that stores oil.



Salsa - Dance The House on Fire
Salsa music is a subgenre of Latin music highly popular across Latin and North America. Salsa derives from the Cuban Son, Mambo, Son Montuno, and Guaracha with touches of other genres including Pop, Jazz, Rock, and RnB. The terms Latin Jazz and Salsa are sometimes used interchangeably.



Cha Cha - The Ubiquitous Latin Dance Style
One of the most ubiquitous of Latin dance styles, the Cha-Cha (or chachachá) developed either from the Cuban Danzón of the 1870s or from a slower version of the Mambo (called the "Double Mambo") in New York. By the early 1950s, the dance spread like wildfire through American musical culture.



Caribbean music
A substantial amount of Tropical music does not have a structure that is associated with a particular Tropical subgenre, hence such music is simply classified as "Caribbean" as a catch-all derived from the general geographic region where the music originated.



Tropical Pop
Tropical Pop is radio-oriented Tropical Latin music, either vocal or instrumental, that contains elements of Tropical, Latin, Pop and also sometimes Rock, Dance and Electronic music. Tropical Pop music is perfect for TV and film productions and commercial advertisements.



Merengue
Merengue is a type of music and dance from the Dominican Republic. It is popular in the Dominican Republic and all over Latin America. It is thought that the name of the music was derived from the fast frenzied movement on the dance floor that could remind one of an egg beater in action, whipping up merengue!



Rumba - It's All In The Hips!
Rumba is a family of percussive rhythms, song and dance. It originates in Cuba as a combination of the musical traditions of Spanish colonizers and of Africans brought to Cuba as slaves. Truly one of the most sensual of all Latin dances, the Rumba dance is a masterful display of hip and body control with sensual interplay between couples.



Mambo
This Afro-Cuban dance genre, similar to Salsa and Rumba, was popular during the 1940's and 50's and became part of the big band sound of the 1950s. Performed by the Cuban conjunto, it included an ensemble of voice, trumpets, and rhythm sections. The rhythm sections would include a bass, conga, and timbale or cowbell.



Afro-Caribbean
Afro-Caribbean music is a broad term for music styles originated in the Caribbean. These styles of music usually has West African influence because of the presence and history of African people and their descendants living in the Caribbean, as a result of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.



Cumbia
The term Cumbia refers to both a style of Colombian folk-dance music, which originated on the country's northern Atlantic coast, and its dominant rhythm, which was assimilated into a great deal of Latin-American music in the Northern Hemisphere.
