Let the music play
International jazz musicians, British singer Patricia Lowe and Brazilian percussionist Gilson Silviera, are on the island for the opening night performance of the Naniki Jazz Safari.
Yesterday they enjoyed a special welcome to Barbados when they were met by representatives of gold sponsors United Insurance and also joined Barbadian steel pannist Leroy Boyce for an impromptu music session at the Hilton Hotel.
The jazz safari, in its first year, will open tomorrow night at the Hilton Old Fort with Lowe, an Afro Jazz singer of Barbadian parentage, as one of the headliners.
The T. S. Monk Quintet of the United States will also perform.
“I’m looking forward to performing in Barbados. This island is special to my heart,” said Lowe, who is based in Italy. She has promised a eclectic session.
The artiste, whose parents came from St. Andrew before moving to England, has two albums Finally and Smiling Inside and reported that her third will be out sometime this year.
