Masala, No Chai

While Indo-Caribbean people share culture with their East Asian roots, they have also developed a very unique culture specific to the demographic of the Caribbean.

Culture is often differentiated by clothing, food, and music. Shot in Singh’s, classic Caribbean roti shop, these images were curated to provide visuals of some of these components that Indo-Caribbean’s take pride in.

Masala Chai, a common tea in India and other South Asian countries, is actually not very popular in The Caribbean. Because of British imperialism, we drink black teas like Lipton. We do however still share the use of masala as a spice in our foods hence the title masala, no chai.
