Music

The main types of music popular in Grenada are calypso and reggae. French Caribbean music known as ‘zouk’ now seems to be having a strong influence on calypso. There are a few local bands who mainly play on the hotel circuit. Steel pan, originating in neighbouring Trinidad, is a major part of the music scene and is improving in standard all the time. There are also a few drumming groups scattered around the island.

 

Cuisine

Grenada being the ‘Isle of Spice’, it is expected that the cuisine uses plenty of spices, nutmeg, bay leaf, allspice, capsicum, pepper, cinnamon, turmeric, clove and ginger. Grenadians like to use hot pepper sauce as an accompaniment and some good varieties are available for sale. Chicken dishes are popular, especially barbeque, and fish (fresh local fish and salted cod). Crab and callaloo (a spinach-like vegetable) is a speciality as is oil-down, a stew with coconut, breadfruit, vegetables and often pork or fish. 

 

Tourism

Tourism as an industry is growing more and more. The majority of the hotels are small-scale and locally-owned but now there are a few larger hotels and there are many more projects being planned, especially all-inclusive resorts. Many of these are foreign-owned. Carriacou has mainly small guest houses and secluded intimate resorts and Petite Martinique has been barely touched by tourism.
