How did various cultures blended with the migrants and the inhabitants?


  • In Trinidad the annual Muharram procession was transformed into a riotous carnival called ‘Hosay’, in which workers of all races and religions joined.
  • The protest religion of ‘Rasta fasionism’ also reflected social and cultural links with Indian migrants to the Caribbean.
  • ‘Chutney Music’, a fusion, popular in Trinidad and Guyana is another example of post-indenture period.
  • These forms of cultural fusion are part of the making of the global world, where things from different places got mixed and became something entirely new.
