Fond d’Or Jazz 2015

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

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.
