Plymouth by the sea, under the volcano

Oh what a world of surprise isles! Of the many Caribbean beauties, Montserrat has a history unlike any other. Irish-speaking Africans, a world-class rock’n’roll recording studio, a devastating volcano that destroyed the capital and keeps half the island covered in ash and lava flows.

But the music never quits! Sample the good ol’ days of soca, string bands, and the new post-volcanic underground.
