Jazz 'n Creole Offers Dominica's Unique Musical Vibe : Discover Dominica, the Nature Island

Jazz 'n Creole Offers Dominica's Unique Musical Vibe

Jazz-N-Creole-IMG 7034

In late May, visitors can add Jazz 'n Creole to their Nature Island experience. The event includes a fusion of jazz and creole music, scrumptious food and a celebration of local culture.

Main stage performers for 2015 include Ronald Tulle, described as one of the greatest pianists from Martinique. Ralph Thamar is making his first appearance on the Jazz 'n Creole stage. Thamar, also from Martinique, is best known as lead singer of the group Malavoi. In addition, Michele Henderson, Dominica's Princess of Song, will return to the Jazz 'n Creole main stage. Also returning to the main stage is Barbadian saxophonist, Arturo Tappin. Described as a cross between Teddy Pendergrass and Kenny G, Tappin is referred to as the smoothest, 'saxiest' horn man the Caribbean has to offer.

The annual event takes place from May 17-24 with the main stage performances planned for Sunday, May 24 at Fort Shirley in the Cabrits National Park. Built in the 18th century, historic Fort Shirley is one of the most impressive military installations in the West Indies.
