Panel: Caribbean Popular Culture Through Music
Click here to access the podcast of the panel discussion "Exploring Caribbean Popular Culture through Music" held last November 17, 2007 at the Brooklyn Museum and moderated by curator Tumelo Mosaka. I was one of the panelists, along with artist Miguel Luciano and Prof. Sujatha Fernandes. We discussed the cultural impact of different popular Caribbean musical styles, including soca, salsa, calypso, reggae, reggaetón, hip-hop, mambo, and merengue.
The art exhibit that inspired the panel, Infinite Island: Contemporary Caribbean Art, will be up at the Brooklyn Museum until January 27.
