JAZZ OPENER

The Star (St. Lucia) - Life Begins 2 Nite - - CONTENTS - Pho­tos by David Pas­cal

Thurs­day night marked the of­fi­cial open­ing of the 2015 Jazz Fes­ti­val and what a grand en­trance it was with reg­gae prince Chronixx and the self pro­claimed queen of bac­cha­nal Des­tra Garcia burning up Min­doo Phillip Park. (Lit­er­ally and fig­u­ra­tively.) The fes­tiv­i­ties con­tin­ued in Soufriere with the Orig­i­nal Bouyon Band and Jah Cure play­ing well into the wee hours of Satur­day where Carimi and Zouk Ma­chine awaited at Fond d’Or. Lo­cal acts were also a huge part of the pro­gramme. The In­vader, Arthur, Sedale, Avot Ser­vice, Fu­ture Lights, Karma and Eval­u­cian were all on the bill.
