Winin' Yo' Wais': The Changing Tastes of Dance in the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Croix

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Opening with the exuberant “wining” and even more sexually explicit “wukkin up” of St. Croix’s Carnival, Oliver moves on to the diverse history of the multiply-colonized U.S. Virgin Islands, their continuing pinch between North American and Caribbean Identities, the revival of the historical bamboula as a “nation dance” by folkloric groups despite persistent debate on what it looked like historically, and another “nation dance,” the quadrille, still danced to the local quelbe music in public dances and private Heritage Dance Balls.”
