Barbados – Culture

The culture of Barbados comes from a blend of West African and British cultures. Music and dance are both important in Barbados. The most popular styles of music are calypso, reggae, spouge, and soca, and often contain some elements of Indigenous styles. Now contemporary and world music are also popular. Children are exposed to dance at an early age, and it is often a part of the curriculum. Dances are important during various festivals, holidays, and other events. The architecture in Barbados resembles that of Britain, with Jacobean, Georgian, and Victorian styles, although they usually are adapted to better fit the Island environment. Religion is an important part of Barbadian life, and 95% of the inhabitants identify as Christian.

Barbados is a beautiful country with wonderful people.
