Dominica’s very own ‘Triple Kay Global’, popularly known for their unique bouyon rhythms, will bring added spice by featuring ‘Ole Benz’ and ‘Nayee’. A line up of cadence All Stars branded with a uniquely Dominican essence includes ‘Fitzroy Williams’ – the “Honored Icon” for this year’s festival, ‘Halibut’, ‘Elisha Benoit’ and the ‘King of Cadence’ – ‘Chubby’!
