What a start to the 11th annual Barbados Jazz Festival!


National Heroes Square reverberated with the sounds of soca, soul and belé last night as three acts began what promises to be another great festival of music.

“I’m happy,” declared Gilbert Rowe of GMR International, producer of the festival. “This is what will be happening, Lord spare life, for the next ten years, taking the free concerts to St Philip, Christ Church. We look forward to doing a show like this in St John,” he told the SUNDAY SUN.

Today’s Jazz On The Beach at Brandon’s features pannist David Ziggy Walcott, The Abstract Band and Puerto Rican group Sepulveda.
