GODFREY LUKE, a native of Trinidad who began drumming at the age of five, studied with Roderick “Rollo” Foster and the legendary Andrew Beddoe. In the mid-1980s/early 90s, he played with the Pleasantville Drummers and worked with ensembles in Fyzabad, Sobo, and La Brea for the annual PrimeMinister’s Best Villiage Competitions. He then spent four years in Senegal, studying drumming, costuming, and stilt dancing, returning to Trinidad in 1998 to teach drumming and costuming at Fyzabad Senior Comprehensive, a two-year college. In 2000, Godfrey formed the ensemble Fyzabad Inner Circle which he directed until 2010, when he moved to the island of Grenada to accept a position with the Ministry of Tourism, performing and producing shows for national festivals and special events.

GRENADA’S UNDERWATER MUSEUM

Images of Grenada's Underwater Museum

Home to corals, sponges, and schools of fish, the waters of Moliniere Bay are clear and shallow. The sculpture garden, containing 65 pieces of underwater art, can be explored by divers and snorkelers or partially viewed from a glass-bottomed boat. As the corrosion of salt water and the growth of marine life take effect on the sculptures over time, the works begin to take on eerie but breathtaking new character and depth.
