Dominica Ragga Kweyol Festival
Ragga Kweyol (Creole) is a partnership between the Government and private sector for the development of the culture and people of Dominica. Dominica has a rich Kweyol culture and has begun showcasing the rich musical elements via the initiation and development of the World Creole Music Festival that provides access to International Creole Music in the English speaking Caribbean. By promoting the same Kweyol objective, the Sponsors wish to use this forum to further promote Dominica’s rich cultural music in a different music style. This particular music is native Kweyol mixed with music from Jamaica such as Reggae and Dancehall, named Ragga Kweyol.
Dominica stands strong in belief that this and other musical events that capitalize on the Island’s unique brand as the Land of Kweyol Festivals, boosts tourism and promotes Dominica’s relationship to other islands like Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Lucia, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, with the cultural exchange between artists in this art form.
This event takes place on Saturday 29th April at the Stadium Forecourt in Roseau, Dominica.
