OPHELIA, the renowned Dominican artist and queen of cadence-lypso, is all set to make her first-ever tour to Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean. Departing soon from Dominica this tour marks a significant milestone in Ophelia’s career as she becomes the first Dominican artist to travel directly from Dominica to Réunion Island to perform in this French Overseas Department.

Réunion Island has long been an ardent admirer of Dominica’s cadence-lypso music, and Ophelia’s visit is eagerly anticipated by the island’s population of over 800,000. This tour presents a unique opportunity for Ophelia to connect with her fans and showcase her unparalleled talent in a new and vibrant setting.

While Ophelia’s fans in the Western Hemisphere may be disappointed not to see her at the upcoming World Creole Music Festival (WCMF) in October (because the Organizers did not accept her very modest proposal), they can take solace in the fact that negotiations are underway with concert promoters in Paris for performances on the same
weekend that are sure to captivate audiences in the City of Lights. Ophelia highly regrets that because of the tour to La Reunion to carry the Dominican musical flag in the Indian Ocean, she will not be physically present at the 50th Jubilee of Cadence-lypso.

However, her many popular songs will be presented at the event by a cadre of highly talented and popular young female singers. Ophelia’s fusion of Caribbean rhythms and infectious melodies has garnered her a dedicated following worldwide. Her soulful voice and captivating performances have earned her the title of the queen of cadence-lypso, and she continues to be a trailblazer in the music industry.

This tour to Réunion Island serves as a testament to Ophelia’s global appeal and recognition. It is an opportunity for music lovers on the island to experience the magic of her live performances first-hand, immersing themselves in the soulful vibes that have made Ophelia an iconic figure in the industry.
