Fond d’Or Jazz 2015
The Fond d’Or Foundation is pleased to announce for the fifteenth year running Fond d’Or Jazz for 2015. This year the celebration of real Saint Lucian folk sounds, blending with smooth jazz and Caribbean music, will be held on Saturday 2nd May, 2015 from 3:00 p.m.
The keys, the harmony, the voices, and the flow; the trees, the cool Atlantic breeze; the people, the culinary delights; exquisite social ambience; all the right ingredients to take you on a journey to Fond d’Or Jazz! Although some distance from the popular main stage jazz venues in the north - it is located in a rustic plantation setting on the east coast of Saint Lucia - Fond d’Or has made a name for itself over the last 14 years as the kick-off event of ‘bringing the best of jazz to the people’ during the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival.
This year the festival will play host to Saint Lucia’s very own: Avot Sevis, Evalucian Band and Miste en Local.
Building on the scintillating 2013 festival with Kassav, which saw numerous attendees, this year’s 2015 festival will highlight Carimi from Haiti but based in the US, and the internationally renowned group Zouk Machine from Guadeloupe.
Tickets cost EC $80 in advance from all of the usual outlets and will be EC$100/ US$40 at the door. All prices are inclusive of VAT. As has been the norm, children under the age of 12, accompanied by an adult, will enter the park for free.
Fond d’Or Nature Heritage Park is family-friendly and there will be a designated area for children with a wide range of entertainment activities.
Fond d’Or Jazz is a community event produced by the Fond d’Or Foundation, a not-for-profit community development organization.
