Caribbean Star Airlines has gone for platinum sponsorship of the 6th edition of the Annual Creole Music Festival. The festival, which is carded for November1-3 this year, is the Caribbean’s newest festival and has been successfully staged in ‘The Nature Island of the Caribbean,’ Dominica for the past 5 years.
A production of the Dominica Festivals Commission, the festival allows various forms of creole music from all over the world to be heard on a single stage in what has been dubbed ‘three nights of pulsating Creole rhythms and styles’. The forms of Creole Music showcased include Compas from Haiti, Zouk from the French Antilles, Soukous from West Africa and Cadence Lypso/Bouyon from host country, Dominica. 12 Bands, some from as far as France, and Africa will grace the Roseau stage. This year’s festival will also coincide with Dominica’ s 24th Anniversary of Independence celebrations.
The festival’s popularity has grown steadily in the past 5 years, both regionally and internationally. As such Caribbean Star Airlines has responded to the need for transportation to and from the island, as it is the official regional carrier for the mu sic festival. The Star will not only be moving regional festival patrons, but they will also be connecting the visitors from around the world out of their hubs in Antigua and Barbados.
Director of Marketing, Sandra Scotland says that the Airline plans to continue to lend its support to this type of festival, as it is in keeping with their commitment to the social and economic development of all 14 of its destinations. In addition to s ponsorship, the airline is very visible at these festivals, with their corporate tent, staging ‘under the tent’ games, and giving information on the airline.
