Crowd at Creole in the Park

LIME Creole in the Park suffered a somewhat poor turnout on Day 1, and Day 2 got off of a similarly slow start.

But with the Midnight Groovers, Swinging Stars, and the Carib Calypso Connection featuring some Dominica’s most popular calypsonians to hurrah on the main stage later in the day, day 2 ramped up to an awesome high note.

A sunny to partly cloudy weather forecast seemed to keep many people home until mid-afternoon.

Shades of Green, Midnight Groovers, and Marie Claire Giraud all had to work with the crowds they were given, but thankfully the park began to fill as Swinging Stars took the stage.

One of my favorite acts on Day 2 was the Carib Calypso Connection featuring Bobb, Soul Puss, Observer, Tasha P, Sye, Hunter, Prospser, Daddy Chess, Dice, and Karessah. Fans responded in kind to the favorite calypsonians, whose energy and interaction kept the crowds hot while the temperature began to drop.

Like you, dear readers, I can’t wait to see what happens on Day 3, with WCK, The Menace, The kase & Smokie Cut, and Peter Ram from Barbados all on the lineup is definitely expected to draw a huge crowd.

LIME Creole in the Park kicked off yesterday at the historic Botanical Gardens. Although there were some concerns over the weather in the early part of the day, but it actually worked out OK.

Strange sound mixing issues continued to plague the performers, and there was a definite absence of that ‘Creole in the Park’ vibe on the opening day.

Whether that will remain true for tomorrow’s show, offering a more stacked line up headlined by Swinging Stars and the Carib Calypso Connection performance remains to be seen.

The only main stage bands worth mentioning for me on the day one were the Original Serenade Band, who put on a solid energetic performance, and Kompa Kila from Guadeloupe, who seemed to get better with each song.

Finally, the highlight of the day for me was definitely the Fanatik Bank. Not only did they inject the party vibe with some much needed energy, but they put on a fantastic performance which coincided with whole Independence Celebrations.

Overall, day one of Creole in the Park was much calmer than I imagined; also a lack of excitement and energy. I’m expecting more fun, but more logistical frustration, from Day 2.

Thousand of music lovers packed the Botanical Gardens Thursday for the forth and final day of the 2009 LIME Creole in the Park.

It’s been an amazing four days of Creole Food, Art & Craft, Creole Music and Culture, there were a few challenges this year including the weather.

The final day kicked-off with performances by Genesis Steel Pan, Karifuna Cultural Group, Nature Boys Band, and Dominican reggae artist Harry Mo.

Following Harry Mo was DJ Midian and then the long anticipated performance by the TripleKay International, who didn’t disappoint their huge fanbase who came out to support. Next on stage was Ziggy Rankin alongside Tempo.

The final performance came from Internationally acclaimed Jamaican reggae artist Cecile, who brought down the curtains on LIME Creole in the Park 2009 with a phenomenal performance.

As I concluded our coverage of Creole in the Park 2009, I think it’s fair to say that everyone who came out enjoyed myself and had a good time sharing great experiences.

To all the Dominicans in the diaspora and foreigners, who were unable to be here to share the fun and excitement – I hope our coverage of Creole in the Park 2009 helped in anyway. With that said, I encourage you to continue visiting Dominica-Weekly.com for more coverage of Dominica’s 31st Independence Celebrations.
