The festival, formerly known as Caribbean Jazz Safari, has been rebranded the Naniki Music Festival, to include a more diverse musical line-up. This year the Barbados festival will feature three shows spanning the genres of jazz, reggae and calypso.

On Thursday, January 15, Denise, who has received numerous accolades worldwide for her show Ella, a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, will take the stage at Frank Collymore Hall, along with Barbadian singer Debbie Reifer for a night of Jazz In The City.

Reggae will echo through Holders on Saturday, January 17, when superstar Maxi Priest and Bajan reggae artist Albert Olton rock the stage for Echoes Of The Caribbean.

The weekend ends on Sunday, January 18, with Cooler Fusion In The Hills at the Naniki Amphitheatre, featuring kaiso master David Rudder, Biggie Irie and the talented Nikita, backed by the band C4.

Executive producer of the show, Tom Hinds, said he was proud of the move to evolve and include other musical genres.

“Patrons can expect the same high quality series of shows with fantastic featured artistes and musicians, along with a showcase of emerging local talent,” he said.

Hinds advised: “As always, you can look forward to a VIP experience and exotic venues.”
