Music, p. 255

Dance and music mediate between the sensual and the spiritual life.  Ludvig van Beethoven (modified quote)

Introducing the sound of chutney-soca Caribbean music. In Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Jamaica, and Suriname, Chutney soca music is a crossover style of music incorporating Soca elements and Hindi-English, Hinglish, Bhojpuri lyrics, chutney music, with Indian instruments such as the dholak and dhanta. So what if the novel is a decade earlier than chutney-soca! It was an effort to modernize calypso. Be happy!
