IN PICTURES: National Cultural Gala 2015


On Tuesday afternoon (November 3) the annual National Cultural Gala took place at the Botanic Gardens as part of the island’s Independence celebrations.

A number of groups from around the island participated in the event.

One of Dominica’s leading accordionist, Edney Francis, received the Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to the preservation and promotion of traditional music, while the Sixth Form Sisserou Singers will receive the E.O LeBlanc Trophy for its outstanding work in promoting choral music.

See photos below from the event.

    Beautiful pictures. Excellent show.
    Life has to go one. There was some degree of Independence observation and celebration which could not be overlooked and had to take place at this time.
    Congratulations to those who received awards for their input in music. When hearing and listening to your music and songs, you certainly make Dominicans and others who listen happier.
    Music contributes to everyone’s enjoyment. As the saying: ‘”If music be the food of love, play on.” Keep on playing and singing. We need more of this in especially this era.
    God bless you and with many more added enjoyment!

    Has anyone thought of using African fabric, since this is more akin to our cultural heritage???
