Jazz 2018 is on the home-stretch. Culture Minister Fortuna Belrose is hoping that Saint Lucians will support the various events, which are being staged under the Soleil jazz banner
This week’s events will include west coast jazz with a Latin flare. That activity is the result of collaboration between the governments of Saint Lucia and Mexico.
Member of Parliament for Anse La Raye/Canaries Dominic Fedee says the events will bring a much-needed economic boost to the area.
In 2017, the jazz festival was re-branded as one of the events under the St Lucia Soleil Summer Festival.
Organizers – the events company of Saint Lucia, say it is now an authentic jazz festival. This year’s event will see the likes of songstress Lalah Hathaway and Cuban piano prodigy Alfredo Rodriguez.
Some of the headline shows will be held in hotels and the mainstage Sunday event at the Pigeon Island Heritage Park.
