Sending flowers to Barbados

This Caribbean island constitutes a sovereign state, but it is considered part of the Lesser Antilles, a group of islands located in the East Caribbean, between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. There are many theories about the origin of the name “Barbados”, some say it is due to the bearded Indians that are believed to have lived North of South America in the past. Others say that the name is due to the high number of fig trees that grown in the island, whose roots hang like beards.

Barbados was a Spanish colony from the 15th century until the 17th century, moment in which the English arrived and took it. Due to the successive settlements and having received immigrants from many different places, Barbadian culture is a mix of traditions, mostly British and Western African traditions. The truth is that it is the Caribbean island with the strongest British influence, although it was declared independent in 1966. One only has to look at what is their national sport: cricket.

As for its musical culture, the most singular of Barbados has been seeing Rihanna being born and raised, considered one of the most influential singers of today’s scene. Her R&B;, hip-hop, reggae and pop songs have sounded all over the world for many years.

Furthermore, tourism is the biggest driving force in Barbados, thanks to its paradisiac beaches of crystal-clear water and rosy sands, and the great biodiversity that can be seen when doing scuba diving or snorkeling.
