The estimated population of Martinique is today of 436.000 inhabitants, for an average density of 228 inhabitants by Km² (in 2006). Composed primarily of blacks or half-caste (nearly 80 %), originating from Africa, coming from the guinean coasts for the needs of the sugar cane culture during the XVIIth and XVIIIth century.
The martinique society testifies of the long
interbreeding of various human groups. This diversity of the population results
in the existence of a coloured folklore, popularized in Europe and North America
by groups of dancers and singers.
