Trinidadian’s culture is influenced greatly by the diverse background of their native ancestors and the local cuisine has Creole and Chinese influence, but the main dishes are dominated by Indian spices. The music is a combination of syncopated rhythms emanating from Steel Drums and Calypso (which gave way to Soca, a marriage of soul and calypso), is the name used to describe the local music, which is a combination of African, Asian, French and Spanish influence.
The people are humble, proud of their native land, seldom influenced by outsiders and some hold steadfast to traditions passed on through generations. Although various religious beliefs exist, the entire country comes together annually to celebrate ‘Divali, the Festival of Lights’, Eid-ul-Fitr, and Christmas.
