25 Days of Christmas, day 10 comes from my home country, Trinidad & Tobago. Daisy Voisin was hailed as the Parang queen. We didn’t have a clue what she was saying, but the melody was all we needed to blend this bad beat into our culturally festive Christmas celebrations.
Parang is a type of folk music, which was introduced to the Trinidad & Tobago culture by Venezuelan migrants. What a privilege it is to be able to relate to such a blend of cultures. Grateful I am.
