Congaline Music Festival

'It is ironic that Barbados' historical cultural diversity is the main characteristic that will make the country unique in the face of globalisation.'

This is the view of Minister of Health Senator Jerome Walcott, who addressed the opening of the ninth Congaline Festival And Trade Fair at Dover last year.

"This cultural diversity has occurred as a result of our history but now, ironically, it forms the basis for us to inform the world that we are important via our arts, dance, music, and of course, steelpan," he said.

Congaline 2004Congaline This year marks the tenth anniversary of the inaugural Congaline Street Festival.

Back in 1994, it was a week-long “mini-Carnival” with a jump up along the South Coast of the island featuring T-shirt bands, free concerts on Dover Playing Field each night, calypso releases and a beauty show among its attractions. That was then. Ten years later, the “Congaline Street Festival” has evolved into the “Congaline Music Festival”, a three-day series of concerts on Dover Playing Field whose profile has become so low that this year rumours were circulating about its demise. While the music festival idea is not a bad one, the increasingly low profile has made me wonder whether Congaline has much longer to live.

Congaline In order to facilitate those dreams of success the NCF hosted a Music Symposium at the end of the Congaline Music Festival. Various speakers shared their expertise in order to help recording artistes with various areas of advertising and marketing of themselves and their product.
