Item description for Creating Their Own Space: The Development of an Indian-Caribbean Musical Tradition by Tina K. Ramnarine...

Characterized by fast-paced, highly danceable rhythms, chutney is a fusion of traditional and contemporary Indian and Caribbean influences. In this volume Tina K. Ramnarine explores the evolution of chutney and introduces the emerging Indian-Caribbean genre into the area of scholarly discourse. Through analysis of the music, Ramnarine provides insights into social processes, effects of the diasporic settlements and ways the music operates as a symbol of Indian-Caribbean identity. This introduction of new cultural elements is a common occurrence among people transplanted to an unfamiliar geographical and cultural environment.

Reviews - What do customers think about Creating Their Own Space: The Development of an Indian-Caribbean Musical Tradition?

Comprehensive and very enjoyable work  Jul 22, 2005
Ramnarine's book on the chutney music of Trinidad and Tobago is only the second book on this unique and recent Indo-Caribbean popular and traditional form (after Peter Manuel). I really enjoyed reading her work, which presented a more clear representation of East Indian music and how it functions as both an industry and an expression of community spirit. Her writing is very accessible for both the scholar and enthusiast. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in gathering a more complete picture of Trinidad's culture and music.
