This chapter reflects on the debates concerned with the usefulness of the concept of creolization in globalization studies in order to emphasize the fluid and unstable nature of culture. It tests the usefulness of creolization through a study of US saxophonist David Murray's collaboration with Guadeloupean musicians. It also compares understandings of Édouard Glissant's créolisation with the meaning of creolization for the musicians involved in the Creole Project in Guadeloupe. The chapter shows that ‘creolization’ and its related terms ‘Creole’ and ‘créolité’ continue to hold specific and disputed meanings in Guadeloupean society.

Keywords:   creolization, David Murray, Édouard Glissant, Creole Project, Guadeloupe, Creole, créolité
