The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The 25th edi­tion of the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Fes­ti­val will be of­fi­cially launched here next week. This year’s event will be held April 29th to May 8th, 2016 and is ex­pected to fea­ture an eclec­tic mix of per­form­ers as well as an ex­pose of the Saint Lu­cian culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence, art and craft, spo­ken word, dance and the re­turn of “HOT Cou­ture.”

The launch of the 2016 Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Fes­ti­val will be held on Tues­day Jan­uary 12th and the or­ga­niz­ers are keep­ing the line-up close to their chest un­til then. How­ever, word is that the event will see the re­turn of some past favourites as well as a few pop chart-busters.

Per­form­ers will come from Saint Lucia, the wider Caribbean as well as North Amer­ica, offering a wide range of gen­res in­clud­ing Jazz, Pop, Reg­gae, Soca, R&B and World Beat mu­sic. How­ever, some Latin flare is ex­pected to be one of the high­lights of this year’s event with a ma­jor per­former from that genre who has crossed over to pop mu­sic.

Tues­day’s launch will be held at the John­son’s Cen­tre.
