Aruba

Aruba has a handful of not-quite-famous but very talented stars. Over the years, several local artists, including composer Julio Renado Euson, choreographer Wilma Kuiperi, sculptor Ciro Abath, and visual artist Elvis Lopez, have gained international renown. Further, many Aruban musicians play more than one type of music (classical, jazz, soca, salsa, reggae, calypso, rap, pop), and many compose as well as perform. Edjean Semeleer has followed in the footsteps of his mentor Padu Lampe—the composer of the island’s national anthem and a beloved local star—to become one of the island’s best-loved entertainers. His performances pack Aruba’s biggest halls, especially his annual Christmas concert. He sings in many languages, and though he’s young, his style is old-style crooner—Aruba’s answer to Michael Bublé.

Finally, the island's many festivals showcase arts and culture. To find out what's going on, check out the local English-language newspapers or look for events online at aruba.com.
