Words by Jesse Serwer—

Visiting Guadeloupe and Martinique from the United States just got a whole lot easier. American Airlines introduced weekly direct flights to the French departments from Miami in April and, adding more connection options, AA’s new partner Seaborne Airlines is now flying four days a week from Puerto Rico to Guadelouple’s Pointe-à-Pitre Airport and Martinique Aimé Césaire International.

Throwback Thursdays: Kassav’s “Zouk la Sé Sél Médikaman Nou Ni”

Words by Scott Brown

A sacred set of Caribbean songs have made it into the canon of Miami party music. Songs like “Get Involved,” from the Bahamas’ Dr. Off, and an assortment of dancehall hits, like Red Rat’s ”Tight Up Skirt,” get locals dancing regardless of heritage. “Zouk la Sé Sél Médikaman Nou Ni” is another must-have for any Miami DJ’s collection. While the zouk sound please the kompa-loving Haitian massive, the infectious rhythm of the song has remarkable cross cultural appeal.
