NANIKI CARIBBEAN JAZZ SAFARI arrives in St Vincent & the Grenadines
Naniki Caribbean Jazz Safari makes its fourth and final stop this year, at Calliaqua Courts, St Vincent and the Grenadines on Friday 29th November.
The organisers are thrilled that The Ministry of Tourism is a principal partner with Naniki Caribbean Jazz Safari. The jazz safari is the first of its kind on the island and it is a highlight of Tourism Week on the St Vincent Festival calendar in the lead up to the Christmas Season.
The scenic and expansive gardens of Calliaqua Courts, is the setting for this travelling festival that has been dubbed a “thrilling Caribbean musical ride“. The St Vincent concert follows on from a successful “take off” in Barbados in January and has thrilled music lovers in Antigua & Barbuda as well as Grenada.
Tom Hinds, organizer of the event is also a well known promoter of jazz events at his scenic Naniki Restaurant in St Joseph, Barbados. He said that the safari concept was based on moving quality jazz performances to idyllic venues across the Caribbean, and thereby enhancing both the local cultural landscape and the tourism product. He noted that the Naniki Caribbean Jazz Safari would allow local regional artistes to perform with their international counterparts at home and provide educational opportunities for local music students through a workshop and guitar donations that will take place in partnership with the Travelling Guitar Foundation.
