Hello, happy afternoon friends ...

Caribbean music includes different styles and musical traditions of the Caribbean islands, ranging from traditional folk genres to contemporary popular rhythms.

Today I am going to tell you about a genre of Indo-Caribbean music that developed in the southern Caribbean, and is popular in Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Suriname, Jamaica, other parts of the Caribbean, Fiji, Mauritius and South Africa known as
Chutney.

in this style they fuse the Bhojpuri music that comes from India
The language is an official language of Nepal and a minority language in Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, South Africa and Mauritius is Caribbean Hindustani. with local music.

this style of music is quite similar to salsa and is typical of the Caribbean who either speak English as their mother tongue or have great command of it.

chutney was born on the island of Trinidad and Tobago.

The evolution of chutney music is closely linked to that of calypso, a genre that is typical of the black population to which their Hindustani compatriots added elements of traditional Indian folklore - mainly those of the Bhojpuri region. We can therefore treat it as an adaptation to Indian language and culture rather than a genre in itself.

The musical instruments used in this rhythm are: dholak (musical instrument membranophone, two patches, made of hard wood, typical of regions of the Indian subcontinent) the harmonium (wind instrument with keyboard, similar in appearance to the organ, but without pipes) and the dhantal (percussion instrument. It consists of a long steel rod that is held with one hand and with the other hand is struck with a piece of metal in the form of U. It is used by the trinitarians and Surinamese).

The theme of the Chutney's songs are related to the deities, a form of protest and offense to religious leaders.

The chutney through the time has changed by the American influences at the moment The chutney is mixed respectively, with different music, with hip-hop, reggaeton among others.

The soca and chutney are the most important music in Trinidad and Tobago and with which they entertain their famous carnival. This style has spread to other countries.

Today I will share music of the Trinitarian Indian singer Ravi B one of the most talented artists in the Caribbean who can play and sing Chutney Soca.
This has stood out in other genres such as Soca, Reggae, Bhajans or devotional songs and Indian classical singing.
