Whether it’s international hits or authentic Aruba music, our community has a deep appreciation for sound and the way it makes us feel.

Traditional Aruban music, a mix of waltz, danza, mazurka and tumba, is typically performed during festivals and holidays, including Dia di Betico, Flag & Anthem Day, Dera Gai and the weekly Bon Bini Festival.

The local community and island visitors mark their calendars for three of the hottest annual Aruba music festivals - the Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival, the Aruba Soul Beach Music Festival, and the Aruba Summer Festival. All three festivals feature celebrated international and local artists.
