King of Soca, Machel Montano, has said that he is more than ready to dominate the stage at the 17th World Creole Music Festival.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday evening Montano said “it is always a good feeling, I am always excited to come here and have the experience of the Creole Festival. A few years ago I was here and didn’t get to perform, then the second time I was invited to perform it was even better and this time around it is about the nostalgia, the memory of the music the memory of the people.”

Montano who is scheduled to perform on Friday night added that he enjoys the love that he feels from the Dominican people and the nature of the island . The artiste, who is from Trinidad, is known for songs such as Mr Fete,  Vibes Cyah Done, The Fog and Witch Doctor.

Meanwhile, Nigerian group Bracket reassured the Dominican public that they will be entertained on Saturday night.

“They should expect entertainment. It is all about entertaining the crowd, they expect to be happy and be entertained,” a group member said.

The group added that it is the first time in Dominica but not the first time in the Caribbean.

“We are enjoying Dominica, it is so natural, we see a lot of lovely people, a lot of reggae fans. After we have fun on Saturday night we are going to head to St Martin before we come here again,” he said.

The 17th annual World Creole Music Festival kicks off tonight at the Windsor Park Sports Stadium. The festival ends on October 27th.
