Categories: Caribbean, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Lucia, Arts & Culture, Music

Repeating Islands [1] features Leïla Bizet and her bèlè, “a traditional folk dance practiced on islands like Dominica, St. Lucia, Guadeloupe, and Martinique; hailing from the days of slavery, it has become a time-honored symbol of African legacy.”
