Jazz Under the Sun
Each year, during the month of May, the picturesque island of Saint Lucia transforms into a vast festive stage for music lovers. Cited as one of the world’s best – the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival – attracts thousands with a lineup of stellar artistes who fuse famed musical talent and diverse music genres.
The newest addition to the festival is a must-see four days Arts Village Festival in Rodney Bay which includes a variety of art forms such as music, poetry and live art. The streets bring to life Saint Lucia’s rich history and culture as the island’s most eminent artisans display their fine works of art. As festival goers browse through, they are entertained with traditional masquerade, fashion, performance poetry, street dancers and the sweet sounds of jazz music.
If you have missed the festival thus far, the curtains come down this weekend at the iconic and historic Pigeon Island National Landmark with performances from Jimmy Cliff, Jon Secada and Robin Thicke to name a few.
