Turks ramps up music festival

Party in Paradise at the Turks and Caicos Music and Cultural Festival has a star studded line-up this year.

The event from 31st July to 7th August will feature some of the most popular rap, R&B, jazz, reggae, gospel and pop artists as well as a diverse collection of events and activities perfect for all audiences, according to Lindsey Musgrove, director of tourism for the Turks & Caicos Tourism Board.

“We invite new and returning visitors from around the globe to travel to Turks and Caicos this summer; there is no better time to be in the tropics, enjoying the Islands’ vivacious spirit and world-class musical performances,” said Musgrove.

“The Music and Cultural Festival is the perfect opportunity to indulge in an unforgettable vacation at one of our renowned oceanfront resorts while dancing the days and nights away to the sounds of Hollywood superstars on our powdery white sand beaches.”

The Turks and Caicos Music and Cultural Festival boasts an impressive 2006 line-up of A-list performers including Ludacris, one of the music industry’s most in-demand rappers and a 2006 GRAMMY award nominee; American Idol winner Fantasia, whose 2006 accomplishments include four GRAMMY award nominations and a platinum R&B album; the UK’s GRAMMY award winning Steel Pulse, a reggae group committed to fighting injustice and promoting positive messages through spiritually uplifting music; and Yolanda Adams, another GRAMMY award-winning singer whose unique style has helped to liberate gospel music.


The event will also feature artists such as jazz instrumentalist Najee, Jamaican vocal quartet T.O.K., reggae vocalist Stanley Roots, and local Turks and Caicos artists.
