This chapter explores the creation of black-identified music and dance in the Jazz Age by Caribbeans on the move, with special attention to Kingston, Harlem, Panama, and Port Limón, Costa Rica. Out of a rich array of rhythms, Caribbeans migrants created sounds, steps, and social practices that were then borrowed and reworked from site to site. Jazz, son, and mento then reverberated between Harlem, Havana, and Colón in the interwar years. In an effort to contribute to internationalizing the history of jazz, the chapter offers a thoroughly decentered account of where jazz was made and who made it.
