Tuesday 25th June, 2024 – St. George’s, Grenada – The historic Grenada Caribbean Music Festival (GCMF) by Silversands is the talk of the town across the island and the wider region, in the aftermath of its inaugural staging at Port Louis Lawn, St. George’s on Saturday 22nd June 2024. The event is the first entertainment experience of its kind to be hosted by the glamourous hotel chain. Thousands of patrons flocked to the event to be entertained by some of the Caribbean’s finest music stars – including Jeverson, Sabrina Francis, Lika Iké, Patrice Roberts and Mr. Killa.

Jeverson, who also undertook double-duty responsibilities as a feature performing act as well as the Festival Lead, is grateful for the support that his fellow Grenadians continue to show its promising Creative Industries. “Our festival has thrived thanks to the incredible support from our community. It was key to spotlight Grenada – ensuring that the Vibes Stage entertainment exclusively featured Grenadian acts,” he said. “Our main stage showed the culmination of unity of the region, and exposed citizens and international visitors to the beautiful music from the Caribbean.” The singer, songwriter and businessman, who is known internationally as the first Grenadian to make an appearance on the popular television series ‘American Idol’, spoke glowingly about the production team who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to execute the quality event to the highest standard – described by several patrons on social media as one of the best entertainment experiences on the island. “We’re really proud that our event started on-time – our production team did an amazing job ensuring that everything ran smoothly for our patrons to deliver world-class entertainment,” Jeverson added. Mark Scott, CEO of Joyau Des Caraibes (Silversands), reiterated the hotel’s commitment to contributing meaningfully to the community by supporting home-grown talent. “Silversands is honoured to have presented this remarkable festival, which highlights the immense talent in Grenada and the Caribbean,” he notes. With the event scoring over 4 million online impressions, Scott looks forward to Silversands continuing to support meaningful events that showcase the best of what Grenada has to offer – including the Vendors Village, local businesses and event partners that contributed to the success of the event. “We are grateful to have partnered with Grenada’s Office of Creative Affairs on an impactful initiative featuring local musicians. Seeing the enthusiasm and joy from local and international attendees was truly rewarding.”



On Saturday, Sabrina Francis set the tone for the evening’s festivities with a fantastic staging of her signature style blend of Afro-Caribbean Pop and R&B genres. With songs like “Cocoa Tea”, “Mama Say”, Francis’s soulful performance with the treehouse band certainly reminded the audience that her talent is one to watch for global superstardom. She also surprised the crowd by delivering vocal offerings of a few unreleased songs from her upcoming EP “Meet Me Under The Mango Tree”, set for release later this year.

Reggae songbird Lila Iké wowed the audience with a powerful hour-long set that delighted her fans and supporters for her first ever performance in Grenada alongside her One Wurl Band. Draped in a stunning marigold silk gown with her signature Afro hairstyle, she took music lovers on a timeless sonic journey through her extensive vocal catalogue – including live renditions of fan favorites “I Spy”, “Where I’m Coming From” and her “He Loves Us Both” that duets with Grammy-Award winning recording artist, H.E.R. Promising more visits to Grenada in the future, the Jamaican entertainer called for more unity among Caribbean people on stage, and praised her Grenadian colleagues for welcoming her with open arms to their island.



Soon thereafter, Patrice Roberts brought the heat to the Grenada Caribbean Music Festival main stage, sending the crowd in a frenzy with a sizzling set that featured hits such as “Old And Grey”, “Mind My Business” and “Anxiety”. Resplendent in a pink and white cutout ensemble and backed by the A-Team Band, the Trinidad and Tobago native – who is known for empowering women through her music – delivered a high-energy performance that seamlessly led into a blockbuster performance from Grenada’s very own, Mr. Killa. Killa, whose real name is Hollice Mapp, gave his fans an eclectic performance of his Power Soca hits that kept crowds dancing in every inch of the venue. He closed the festival activities by giving the crowd a sample of what is to come for Spicemas, Grenada’s beloved Carnival experience.

Due to popular demand, the dates for the highly-anticipated 2025 edition of the Grenada Caribbean Music Festival will be announced later this year. For more information, the public is encouraged to follow the festival’s official social media platforms: @gcmusicfest on Instagram and Facebook.
