Folklore & Traditions

When it comes to music, it’s easy to see that Aruba’s got talent on the local scene—from the Carnival parades and competitions to the live bands in the bars and resorts—this island really moves with its own unique and catchy beat.

The masks line the walls – faces emblazoned with stripes and flowers streamlined with hues of crimson, muted blue, and golden yellow. The expressions they wear are countless – staring, frowning, and grinning – their mischievous eyes waiting to tell a story.
