The Integration Of Soca
The wait for the muchanticipated announcement of just who will perform at the 2015 Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival will soon be over. According to the Saint Lucia Tourist Board (SLTB) the line-up for this year’s event which be held May 1-10 will be announced at a media launch on Thursday February 5. The activity will be held at the Pigeon Island National Landmark from 7:30 pm. The Minister of Tourism, Lorne Theophilus as well as the Director of Tourism, Louis Lewis will address the launch ahead of the unveiling of performers for this year’s event. The activity will also feature performances from Saint Lucian performers.
The Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival has been a major marketing tool used by the SLTB to woo visitors to the island. Over the years it has featured world-class performers including a number of pop, Jazz, Reggae and R&B stars as well as local talent. The 2014 event was headlined by Maxwell and also featured Tessane Chin, P-Square, Kem and others.
Tessane Chin and Maxwell were just two of the stars at last year’s Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival.
