Carnival and Jazz à la Martinique
From racy zouk rhythms to biguine beats, Martinique hums with musical energy all year long. Get in on the action at one of the island’s music festivals. Carnival is a four-day celebration that spans the island. Traditions combine French, Creole, and African customs. Events include everything from steel drum bands, queens’ parades, and vidés to jou ouvè pajama parades, to name a few. The whole island rejoices! In December, Jazz à Martinique brings local and international talent like Branford Marsalis to Fort-de-France. The longest running jazz festival in the Caribbean, the weeklong fête is held every other year.
