fanatik band at Dominica Carnival 2010

Dominica Carnival Monday 2010 kicked into high gear early Monday morning with the traditional J’Ouvert Morning Street Jump up, Ole Mas Parade, and ended with the annual T-shirt Band.

The weather cooperated this year and provided the requisite tropical heat to go along with the saucy dancing and the all rum drinking.

All in all, Carnival Monday was a day of smiles and good vibes. I can’t wait to see what happens on Carnival Tuesday — should be exciting!

As always, we will be posting/sharing photos and videos…so stay tuned.

Here are some fun scenes from Carnival Monday:

Day one of LIME’s Creole in the Park is officially over as the Fanatik Band brought down the curtains with a fantastic performance to what is considered to be the largest turn-out on day one since the event started seven years ago.

Creole in the park (“An Explosion of Creole Food, Art & Craft, Creole Music and Culture“) was created from the need for a day event during Dominica’s National Independence Celebration, but now in its seventh year the family oriented four-day event has grown into an experience beyond words and day one was no exception.

Day one kicked-off with a strong cultural performance by the Giraudel Jing Ping Cultural Group as people started to assembled into the park. In the second act of the day was La Sel Diffewans, followed by a performance by Athie Martin and Friends – which was then followed by the official opening ceremony for LIME’s 2009 Creole in the Park.

During the official opening ceremony musician and one of the originators of Bouyon music, Cornell “fingers” Philip, and the Dominica Folk Singers were the recipients of this year’s Creole Lifetime Awards.

Later, on stage was the young and excited XS Groove band, they were then followed by DJ Flip who warmed-up the massive crowd for the Bouyon Hustlers; the MFR Band out off Portsmouth, and then ever-energetic Sakis Lapo kabwit out off Grandbay serenaded the crowd with traditional drum rhythms. In the final performance on day one, Fanatik Band brought down the house with a versatile performance.
