This chapter discusses the Curacaoan composer Jules Blasini (1847-1887) a child prodigy who had gone to Paris to study at the conservatory and was probably the first to bring back sheet music of Chopin to Curacao tracing his European origins while discussing the socio-cultural and political situation after the abolition of slavery on the island in 1863. It deals with the Sephardic Jewish community too.
