The slate of musicians is building for Dominica’s 15th Annual World Creole Music Festival— one of the only truly indigenous music events in the Eastern Caribbean. The annual festival is planned for October 28–30 at Roseau’s Windsor Park Stadium.
Known for attracting world-renowned musical groups and soloists from the Creole-speaking world, artists at this annual musical extravaganza represent a variety of musical genres, including indigenous styles from East and West Africa intertwined with rhythms of the Caribbean, including zouk, compas, reggae, soca and calypso. Details on the music festival, where to stay and other ideas for planning a trip to Dominica are available online.
