Allepian Waslah which belong to both Jewish and Syrian community and it cannot divide the two communities, in spite of possible controversies between them. Instead, both Jews and Syrians feel certain cultural closeness to each other. At this point, it is important to stress the role of Jewish Syrian community as a heart of Aleppo and Damascus. In such a context, the fact that the Allepian Waslah is still popular in New York proves the idea suggested in books that this music, as a cultural element, can overcome geographical distance and eliminate borders between states and communities. On the other hand, it does not eliminate, but in contrast strengthen the cultural identity of representatives of different ethnic communities. At the same time, 108 heroes slot is just one of the manifestations of a great cultural power of music, as a tool of preservation of cultural identity and cultural interaction between different ethnic groups. In this respect, it is possible to refer to the book by Ray Allen and Lois Wilken, who are editors of “Island Sounds in the Global City: Caribbean Popular Music and Identity in New York”. This book reveals the extent to which New York is a multicultural city. The book focuses the attention of readers on the research of the development of Caribbean music in the New York City, in the context of the formation of social identity of people of the Caribbean origin. In fact, the authors attempt to research different Caribbean styles which became extremely popular in the modern New York City. The authors argue that New York has become the center of Caribbean music and Caribbean culture, because it is the largest city where Caribbean music is widely spread and, what is more important, it is oriented on the mass audience. In such a way, Caribbean music has become not only a means of self expression of Caribbean peoples living in New York, but it also has become a tool with the help of which they can preserve their cultural and social identity. The uniqueness of Caribbean music emphasizes the uniqueness of Caribbean cultures.
However, it is necessary to view the research of the Caribbean music in a broader, multicultural context. In actuality, the authors of the book argue that New York is a kind of melting pot where Caribbean music styles and culture progress dynamically and interact with each other as well as with other music styles and cultures. In this respect, it should be said that the authors focus their attention on specific ethnic Caribbean groups, which have their own culture and their own music style. For instance, the authors point out that Jamaicans tend to calm reggae, Trinidadian community is famous for its calypso and steel pan music.
