In this issue:

New wave of Trinidad music

The rhythm of Trinidad Carnival is always changing. The sounds of today — loud, fast, saucy — are rooted in the past, but reflect life as it is in 21st-century Trinidad and Tobago. Caribbean Beat looks at four major trends in today's music - rapso, chutney, ragga soca, and "groovy soca"- and some of the artists riding this musical wave
