Kidjo has enjoyed a long history of crossover collaborations with greats from the jazz and pop worlds—including Carlos Santana, Josh Groban, Peter Gabriel, and Alicia Keys.

 

The Jazz ‘n Creole Fringe continues in 2014 with The Evergreen Hotel on June 4, Anchorage Hotel & Dive Centre on June 5, The Fort Young Hotel on June 6, and River Stone Bar & Grill on June 7.

 

Due to growing interest from local businesses, Mr Piper also indicated that pre-fringe activities may begin as early as June 1.

 

Another element of the festival is DHTA’s Hike & Jazz, designed to complement the week’s activities; starting June 1 – Hike & Jazz gives hikers, both visiting and local, the opportunity to hike in the day and attend Jazz activities at night.

 

The vision of DDA is to grow Jazz ‘n Creole and the supporting events to the recognition of Dominica’s other festival tourism products like Carnival & the World Creole Music Festival.  Jazz-n-Creole-321x400
