A New Jerusalem in the Caribbean Sea

(p.1) Introduction
Chanting Down the New Jerusalem

Francio Guadeloupe

University of California Press

This chapter introduces the island of Saint Martin/Sint Maarten (SMX), where more than eighty nationalities live. It describes the island, which is separated into the French side (called Saint Martin) and the Dutch side (called Sint Maarten). It then turns to the existing media personalities on the island, which are the disc jockeys. It notes that these disc jockeys had the potential to influence reality, and realizes the importance of Christian-derived morals and Caribbean music in the island's problem of tourism.

Keywords:   Saint Martin, Sint Maarten, disc jockeys, Caribbean music, tourism, Christian-derived morals
