Folk Music & Dance

The fusion of European and African cultures gave birth to the Quadrille and Belair dance which started as awkward imitations of European dance with some intense African vigour. This form of dance together with music developed with a synthesis of the Church and folk music were used for general celebrations especially on feast days. In recent times St. Lucia has witnessed a tremendous influence of other styles of music which includes the French Zouk, Calypso, Soca, Reggae, and Dancehall.
