THE ISLAND WAY
Curaçao is a melting pot with more than 50 nationalities. Afro-Caribbeans make
up the majority of the population of 160,000 inhabitants. One result of the
historic slave trade is a rich cultural heritage, embraced today by islanders and
visitors alike. To the present day, Afro-Caribbean traditions continue to shape
Curaçao. Examples include the colorful language, Tambú music (Curaçao blues),
cookery and spirituality.
