Stardom Calypso Tent to commence this Saturday

 

Organizers of the Stardom Calypso Tent are anticipating a successful calypso season this year, as they prepare to showcase over twenty-eight (28) calypsonians at the much anticipated event.

 

While addressing the official launching ceremony of the tent at Krazy Koconuts on Tuesday January 18th, 2011, Chairman of Stardom Calypso Tent Mr. Norman Letang says patrons can expect a high standard of performances from the many calypsonians.

 

He says several new features will be added to this year’s Stardom Tent. Among them is the Calypso Queen competition which will be held on the night before the grand finale; the king of the tent.

 

Representative of the Dominica Calypso Association (DCA) Daryl Bobb who also represented Showdown Mas Camp at the ceremony, called for greater collaboration between the two camps, as they seek to preserve the art form.

 

Meanwhile, County Manager of Lime Dominica Mr. Jeffrey Baptiste said that Lime Dominica is pleased to sponsor Stardom Calypso Tent for the second time in the sum of $ 55,000.00.

 

Some of the other sponsors are the National Development Foundation of Dominica (NDFD), Courts Dominica Ltd, Bulls Eye Pharmacy, the Bank of Nova Scotia, Domlec, Belfast Estate Ltd, Dominica Brewery Beverages Limited (DBBL), the Dominica Festivals Committee and Krazy Koconuts.

 

Stardom Tent which will be held at Krazy Koconuts every Wednesdays from 9:00pm will be hosted by Val ‘Young Bull’ Cuffy and Andrew Scrunter.

 

Musical accompaniment will be provided by the worlds best dance band; The Swinging Stars Orchestra.

 

The event will run from January 22nd to March 20th, 2011.
