The spirit of the Caribbean comes alive! 'Destination: Caribbean' is a seven-part essay series paired with a short documentary movie of the same name. Both are dedicated to using music as a means of understanding the past.

Part Two is a 750-word discussion journal-type essay that introduces students to Tambrin, the traditional music of Tobago. This brief vocabulary worksheet contains nine terms that help illustrate how Caribbean culture, despite its modern diversity, originated with slaves' efforts to resist their captors and preserve their African culture.

The essay series is an accompaniment to the short documentary movie 'Destination: Caribbean.' It can also be used standalone and included into a wide variety of curricula. Featuring topics that range from dance to history to the economic realities of being a Caribbean musician, each reading comes with a set of worksheets, activities and quizzes.
