Caribbean Woodstock: A Celebration of Light
Historically Woodstock Music and Art Fair started in 1969 as a music festival that brought together some half million people, it ran for 3 days in Wood Stock, New York. Although WIADCA has only scheduled one day of festivities; Thursday 28th August, the advertised cast and program is a great way to show unity within our Caribbean community.
WIADCA will revisit Carnivals of yesteryear with an "ole mas" competition and then enjoy the presentations of the individuals from our Masquerade bands that will compete for the covetous position individual for 2014.
The grounds at Brooklyn Museum will be transformed into a little Caribbean with vendors serving a variety of Caribbean dishes and arts and crafts all either influenced by the Caribbean or that were made there.
They will feature live musical performances showcasing the genres and subgenres of all of the Caribbean islands including Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Grenada, St. Vincent, Barbados and the many other islands that make up the Caribbean.
Gracing the stage that night will be the multiple winner of the road march and Soca monarch competitions in Guyana Adrian Dutchin, Mikey 2013 People’s Monarch of Barbados, Grenada's Skinny Banton, St Vincent's Problem Child, Antigua's Ricardo Drue, Statement from Barbados, Surette from Haiti, the Boodoosingh Tassa Drummers, DJ Barrie Hype from St Lucia and many more.
