The Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) will host its 11th Edition of Jazz n’ Creole this year after a two-year absence.
The event carded for May 1st at Fort Shirley, Cabrits National Park, was officially launched last week.
Acting Festivals & Events Manager, Samantha Letang who was addressing the ceremony, said the line-up for Jazz n’ Creole will showcase a diverse and interesting set of artistes that are sure to entice and please the patrons and followers of the event both locally, regionally and further afield.
“This year we are going to have two main foreign artistes and we are pleased to announce that the first foreign act that will be gracing our shores for Jazz n’ Creole 2022 is Teddyson John out of St Lucia,” she stated. “We are equally excited to welcome on stage with us, the JSJ trio out of Guadeloupe.”
According to Letang, the DDA has an amazing line-up of local artistes, the 1st four women artistes dubbed Femme 4 for the event this year. They are Shalina, Starsha, Marsha and Tasha P.
“We’re thrilled at being able to host the 11th edition of Jazz n’Creole 2022 after a two-year absence and especially after longing for our cultural events that once brought us all together,” Destination Marketing Manager of DDA, Kimberly King stated…“This year we have successfully piloted special events during what is traditionally the Carnival period and have now made the responsible decision to open up for more events.”
She anticipates that hosting events will attract more visitors to the island whether friends and family or leisure visitors
