Dig­i­cel Brings an Ex­tra­or­di­nary Is­land­wide Jazz Ex­pe­ri­ence to St. Lu­cia

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

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.
