Anguilla is alive with music! Soca, reggae, steel pan and jazz to smooth R&B to even the gospel music…Anguilla is alive with song. There is a rhythm to Anguilla life, music permeates the personality of its people. You can see it our step, which carries a little bounce. Music is a part of our culture.
As a visitor to Anguilla, the best way to enjoy our island is to participate...you are always welcome. Our guests enjoy our musical styles, joining in to “mash sand” (dance) at the beach bars, “liming” (relaxing and hanging out) at a sunset spot, or participating in the frenzy of a “jump up” (that is Anguillian for dance party).
Beyond our music and dancing, creative expression is abound in our art galleries, art festivals, literary festivals and more. The island boasts amazing talent, creative locals that paint, carve, write and preform, and the beauty of Anguilla has attracted artists to from all over the world, both as visitors and now residents. Look out for seasonal festivals, studio showcases, art openings and more.
