What is Mento World?
Mento World is the website of the Austrian non-profit association Mento, an association dedicated to the mediation of Afro-Caribbean culture and, on a more general level, to the promotion of cultural diversity in Austria/Europe. Mento refers to the old Jamaican musical genre Mento and constitutes an acronym standing for Music, Entertainment and Togetherness.
Inspired by the goals of the association, this website is all about spreading Afro-Caribbean culture in Europe with a special focus on music and entertainment. Furthermore, Mento World aims at providing a platform for connecting supporters of Caribbean culture, both within Europe and between Europe and the Caribbean. The ultimate objective of the website is contributing to the appreciation of Afro-Caribbean culture and creating awareness of its roots and backgrounds.
