Midnight Groovers will headline Marigot Jazz Fusion

For the second year, the Marigot Development Committee will add its own magic to the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival fringe experience with a culturally diverse entertainment line-up for 2016 Marigot Jazz Fusion. The event will be staged at the Total Construction Grounds alongside the main Marigot road, from 5pm on Saturday, April 30th to 1am. Headlining will be one of the Eastern Caribbean’s longest surviving musical bands, Dominica’s iconic Midnight Groovers, dubbed by fans as the ‘King of Cadence’ for its unique fusion of Cadence and Calypso. Part of the group’s signature style is the ability to pass social commentary on serious topical issues, all to infectious cadence-lypso melodies.

The world-travelled Midnight Groovers band this year commemorates 41 years in existence with 38 compilations and dozens of chart toppers of the day. The group was awarded a Lifetime Achievement award in 2014 at the 18th annual World Creole Music Festival by the Dominica Festivals Committee.

Also on the cards will be Naked Chords featuring Claudia Edwards, Black Pearl, Mongstar, NRG Band out of Anse La Raye, Ras Africa, Prosper, the Jon Odlum Marigot Secondary School Steel Pan Orchestra and Marigot Youth for Change.

Special appearances will be made by the Valley Carnival Queen Pageant contestants and by Angela O’Brian as part of her ‘Poetry in Motion’ series.

Chairman for the Marigot Development Committee, Anthony Pierre-Louis says, “The evening will be one filled with music, entertainment and fashion and the community of Marigot invites all of Saint Lucia to come out to this culturally inspired show where they will experience the fusion of all genres of music while setting the pace for a true Jazz experience, characteristic of this year’s 25th anniversary of the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival.”
