Carriacou Culture Train String Band Group says thank you
The high point of our performance was having the Minister for Youth, Sports, Culture and the Arts Honorable Norland Cox and his wife sharing the stage with us in demonstrating the Waltz
The Carriacou Culture Train String Band Group wishes to extend thank you to everyone who supported us on our recent trip to Trinidad and Tobago for Carifesta 2019.
First and foremost, to the Government of Grenada thank you for confirming our performance at such a prestigious event. We hope that this will be the first of many opportunities. To everyone who contributed through cash or kind, your generosity added value in making our trip successful and for this we are very grateful as we were well received at all five locations where we performed.
Our group performed pieces that are culturally unique to the island of Carriacou and Petite Martinique, which included the Heels and Toes Dance, Waltz and the song ‘Come and see’, which describes the many attributes of the Islands inviting visitors to come and experience. We also performed ‘Temne’ which showcases our Big Drum Nation Dance, Lauvway and Parang just to name a few.
The high point of our performance was having the Minister for Youth, Sports, Culture and the Arts Honorable Norland Cox and his wife sharing the stage with us in demonstrating the Waltz. Minister, your presence further demonstrated the patriotism and your love for Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. SEE VIDEO BELOW
A special thank you to Minister Cox and his wife for joining us on stage in demonstrating the waltz to the audience at our performance last evening at Southern Academy for Performing Arts. Our culture is loved and was well accepted .

We are confident that many are more aware of Carriacou and Petite Martinique’s existence and by extension Mainland Grenada, through our various performances. We are delighted based on the love received, that our culture was well showcased and as a result we are heading in the right direction.
Our next activity will be the Parang Train which begins November 1st, 2019 on the Sisterisle of Carriacou. We will continue to play our part in preserving our String Band Culture and in the process make Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique the number one destination.
Again, thank you to everyone.
