It is an aspect of Dominica’s carnival that most calypso lovers look forward to every year. It is the annual Lagoon Street Jam and it is on tonight.
Dominica’s longest serving musical band, the Swinging Stars, as part of its contribution to the carnival season, will bring forth a “mash-up” session as it teams up with several calypsonians such as Hunter, Tasha P and Daddy Chess.
The event has been staged every year since the early 1980’s and according to Swinging Stars member Peter Letang, the show promises to be thrilling because the streets of Lagoon is expected come alive.
The band, he said, will first put on a show and will later culminate with special calypso guest stars performances.
The event is sponsored by Carib Beer and organized by the Swinging Stars Band.
Scores of Dominicans gather annually on that particular street to enjoy a free calypso treat from the band every year.
