Digicel Brings an Extraordinary Islandwide Jazz Experience to St. Lucia
Digicel, in keeping with its mandate to help foster and maintain cultural development, is supporting Jazz initiatives across the island to ensure that all St. Lucians get to have an extraordinary Jazz experience for the 2015 festival. Digicel begins the Jazz Festival with the Saint Lucia Tourist Board at the staging of the Opening of Jazz on April 30th at the People’s Auditorium in Marchand and then immediately heads down to Sulphur City for the highly anticipated Soufriere Creole Jazz on May 1st. As proud Platinum sponsors, Digicel is partnering with the Soufriere Regional Development Foundation to showcase an extraordinary world class party under the Pitons. Soufriere will be home to Jah Cure, the original Bouillon pioneers WCK, Barbara Cadet, Teddyson John, Future Lights, Avont Sevis plus local cultural entertainment.
With a quick drive over to the community of Marigot, Digicel in collaboration with the Marigot Development Committee will be hosting Marigot Jazz at the Marigot Playing Field. The event promises a rich fusion of cultural and musical acts with the likes of Ricky T, The Invader, Black Pearl, Ashanti, Future Kid, Mongstar, Secret Band and more.
Moving back to the north of the island, Digicel continues with maintaining the cultural momentum in the community of Monchy. Digicel once again has partnered with the community of Monchy in hosting another truly extraordinary musical experience for residents and patrons of the Monchy Mizik En Kweyol Cultural Extravaganza.
Undoubtedly the Digicel Jazz experience would not be complete without exclusive VIP Jazz parties starting with Different Shades “Show me your Colours VIP party” at Jardin Romantique on May 2nd, Atmosphere presented by Exotic Events on May 7th at Stony Hill and the RCI Little Black Dress party on May 16th at the Indies Night Club.
Having officially entered adulthood, Tea Time Jazz with its unique theme “Music, Art and Heart” has once again partnered with Digicel in delivering an extraordinary Jazz product to patrons.
Digicel continues with more Jazz activity at the Fire Grill Restaurant in hosting Jazz on the Grill which promises a rich variation in performances and genres of music. Digicel also joins JQ Mall and Baywalk Mall in a unique collaboration to present Jazzy Rhythms 2015 on the Rodney Bay strip.
Pigeon island, the home of St. Lucia Jazz, transforms into pure musical bliss with a packed weekend of world class extraordinary talent featuring Beres Hammond, Jon Secada, FloRida, Jimmy Cliff and Chrisette Michele, Robin Thicke, Meshach and many more.
Digicel’s Country Manager Siobhan James-Alexander says, “Our hope is to assist more communities to host their own jazz activities at affordable prices, so that more St. Lucians can have a jazz experience. More persons from the communities can benefit from the financial injection and economic stimulation which having a festival or any event brings. We’re hoping to bring jazz across the island to ensure St. Lucians have a truly extraordinary musical experience.”
Digicel invites everyone to the ultimate jazz climax in Vieux-Fort on May 17th for the grand finale Vieux-Fort Mouvman Ansamn. St. Lucians are encouraged to take in a bit of the jazz action and support the various initiatives.
