Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao - these three islands in the southern Caribbean are a cultural melting pot. Curaçao has one of the largest ports in the Caribbean. In former times, slaves were shipped from here to the neighbouring regions, and many of their descendants returned in the 20th century to work in the salt and oil industries and as dockers in a rapidly expanding port. They brought with them the music of many lands: Merengue from the Dominican Republic, Son from Cuba, Salsa from Puerto Rico, Soca from Trinidad, Cumbia from Columbia, music for the quatro (a small guitar) from Venezuela. The styles formed a unique blend with the surviving African roots.
