A man began hunting for LP records in Martinique. What happened next will shock you!
Just kidding. There’s nothing shocking about it. Unless the thought of feeling the rumble of live drums up close scares you.
“Following the Grooves in Martinique” is my latest piece for Perceptive Travel. Ever wonder where the biguine began? If you are thinking about the composer Cole Porter and his famous number, he didn’t get the rhythm quite right. In the story linked above, I let music be my vehicle as I explore the island of Martinique, a vibrant, far-flung piece of France in the Caribbean. I hope you enjoy it.
