Characterized by fast-paced, highly danceable rhythms, chutney is a fusion of traditional and contemporary Indian and Caribbean influences. In this volume Tina K. Ramnarine explores the evolution of chutney and introduces the emerging Indian-Caribbean genre into the area of scholarly discourse. Through analysis of the music, Ramnarine provides insights into social processes, effects of the diasporic settlements and ways the music operates as a symbol of Indian-Caribbean identity. This introduction of new cultural elements is a common occurrence among people transplanted to an unfamiliar geographical and cultural environment.
