History The modern music history of Trinidad and Tobago reflects the ethnic groups which form the current culture—French, Spanish, British, the African and New World nations from which the African population derives and subsequent immigration from Asia and India in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. A creole (Creole peoples) culture was formed, combining elements of hundreds of African ethnic groups, native inhabitants of the islands, French, British and Spanish colonizers. French planters and their slaves emigrated to Trinidad during the French Revolution (History of Martinique) (1789) from Martinique, including a number of West Africans, and French creoles from Saint Vincent (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines), Grenada, Saint Lucia and Dominica, establishing a local community before Trinidad and Tobago were taken from Spain by the British. Carnival had arrived with the French, and the slaves, who could not take part in Carnival, formed their own, parallel celebration called ''canboulay''. thumb right Map of invasion plan. (File:Grenada Invasion.jpg) By a vote of 108 in favour to 9 (Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, El Salvador, Israel, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and the United States voting against) with 27 abstentions, the United Nations General Assembly adopted General Assembly Resolution 38 7 which "deeply deplores the armed intervention in Grenada, which constitutes a flagrant violation of international law and of the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of that State". The government of China (Government of the People's Republic of China) termed the United States intervention an outright act of hegemonism. The USSR government observed that Grenada had for a long time been the object of United States threats, that the invasion violated international law, and that no small nation not to the liking of the United States would find itself safe if the aggression against Grenada was not rebuffed. The governments of some countries stated that the United States intervention was a return to the era of barbarism. The governments of other countries said the United States by its invasion had violated several treaties and conventions to which it was a party.

Saint Lucia

'''Saint Lucia''' ) is a sovereign (Sovereign state) island country in the eastern Caribbean Sea on the boundary with the Atlantic Ocean. Part of the Lesser Antilles, it is located north northeast of the island of Saint Vincent (Saint Vincent (island)), northwest of Barbados and south of Martinique. It covers a land area of 617 km 2 (238.23 sq mi) and has a population of 174,000 (2010). Its capital is Castries.

One of the Windward Islands, Saint Lucia was named after Saint Lucy of Syracuse (Saint Lucy) by the French, the island's first European settlers. They signed a treaty with the native Carib (Island Carib) Indians in 1660. England took control of the island from 1663 to 1667; in ensuing years, it was at war with France 14 times; and rule of the island changed frequently (it was seven times each ruled by the French and British). In 1814, the British took definitive control of the island. Because it switched so often between British and French control, Saint Lucia was also known as the "Helen (Helen of Troy) of the West Indies".

Representative government came about in 1840 (with universal suffrage from 1953). From 1958 to 1962, the island was a member of the Federation of the West Indies (West Indies Federation). On 22 February 1979, Saint Lucia became an independent state of the Commonwealth of Nations associated with the United Kingdom. "The Saint Lucia Constitution" (1978-December-20 effective 1979-February-22), Government of St. Lucia, December 2008, www.stlucia.gov.lc (see below: ''References''). Saint Lucia is a mixed jurisdiction meaning that it has a legal system based in part on both the Civil Law (Civil law (legal system)) and English common law. The Civil Code of St. Lucia of 1867 was based on the ''Quebec Civil Code of 1866 (Civil Code of Quebec)'', as supplemented by English common law-style legislation. It is also a member of la Francophonie.

The island nation celebrates its independence every year with a public holiday. The financial sector has weathered the global financial crisis, but the recession has hurt tourism.
