Traditions

The Caribbean boasts a rich tradition of folklore. Countries such as Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad have produced outstanding folklorists such as Wordsworth McAndrew, Ken Crosbie, Mark Matthews of Guyana; Louise Bennett and Oliver Samuels of Jamaica; and Paul Keens Douglas of Trinidad, among others. The Guyana Cultural Association (http://www.guyfolkfest.org) in New York along with other Caribbean cultural associations has been keeping the cultural flag flying in North America.
