Jamaican-American singer, Alaine Laughton who goes by the stage name ‘Alaine’ will be the headline act for this year’s Jazz n’ Creole festival.

The announcement was made during the official launch of the 13th Edition of Jazz n’ Creole held at the Realm in Roseau on Friday.

The event is slated for Sunday, May 5 at Fort Shirley in Cabrits, Portsmouth under the theme: “Creole Fusion”, blending creole traditions with a festive flair in outfits that combine traditional Creole elements and a modern colourful twist.

In 2005 Alaine released her breakthrough single, “No Ordinary Love”.  She has also released several hits including ‘Deeper’, ‘Dreaming of You’, ‘Sacrifice’, ‘Rise in Love’, ‘Born To Win’, ‘Bye, Bye, Bye’, and ‘You Are Me’. Her debut album, titled Sacrifice, was released in early 2008 and her album, titled Luv A Dub, was released in Japan in August 2009. Ten of Hearts was released in 2015.

Other artistes will include Dominica’s princess of song, Michele Henderson, The Swingin Stars Band, Lianne “Lí-Lí Octave” Letang, daughter of Dominican soil, and multi-talented singing sensation and Réunion Island native Mapy, known as the violin queen.

The Jazz n’ Creole event will begin at 2 p.m.

    Why is Alaine the face of Jazz and creole? No deep relevance of selection in seems! we could just call it another festival.

    Boy ds, this lady is a combination of beauty, intelligence, talent and distinction unlike the unappealing one you go bonkers about (Lady Sniper).

    I wish you could see her perform in person. But you are much too advanced in age to truly appreciate her melodious and soothing voice, combined with her superlative stage performance.

    As I can find no mention of jazz in Ms. Laughton’s repertoire, would not the event be better titled Reggae n’ Creole?
