Quelbe music exhibit on island

VI traditional music known as Quelbe will be shown on island this month.  The "Quelbe Traveling Exhibit and Colloquium 2005" included historic photographs, wire sculptures and a panel discussion about the "very percussive" music style which has become the official music of the VIs, thanks in large part to efforts by Sen. Shawn-Michael Malone.  The Exhibit has been on display at the St. John School of the Arts. It will move from island to island as an educational tool to increase local interest in the music, according to the St. John Source.  Here’s an example of quelbe.
