The Minister of Tourism encourages the FANATIK Band to be diplomats for Dominica
Minister of Tourism and Legal Affairs, Honorable Ian Douglas has called on one local band to take their music to higher heights by becoming music diplomats for Dominica.
The Minister made this appeal to the FANATIK Band, at their official launching ceremony of their album last evening, at Krazy Koconuts.
Douglas believes that just like what reggae music is to Jamaica and Sparrow is to Trinidad, so too, is the FANATIK Band and Bouyon music is to Dominica.
While congratulating the band on the launching of their album, Douglas encouraged them to make the entire world, their audience.
The launching of FANATIK’s album comes just weeks after another Bouyon band, NCORE emerged on the scene.
Douglas encouraged the upcoming bands to model the many great singers and musical icons that Dominica is blessed with today.
Band leader, Cornell ‘Fingers’ Phillip called on Dominicans to support the band, by purchasing the album, which is available at all record stores in Roseau.
He says he is also pleased to announce that the compilation was recorded and produced professionally in Dominica.
The six member band is made up of Hardley Joseph, Carlyn Xavier, Cornell Phillip, Lindon Lestrade, Jerry Moulon and David Terrell.
