CARIFESTA XIII – Regional musicians to showcase for international buyers

0 1,600

Musicians from around the Region will have the unique opportunity to display their talent for International buyers and promoters when the CARIFESTA XIII Music Showcase comes off at the Grand Market and Buyers Shopping Mall at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC) from August 19th to 26th 2017. Another innovation for CARIFESTA XIII, this showcase offers the opportunity for Caribbean original works of music to be performed before a number of international music buyers who have been especially invited to the Festival to expose them to the vast array of talented musicians we have among us in this Region.

The Garden Green at LESC has been set aside for this purpose during the 10-day Festival and musicians are invited to submit a recording of their work to be able to take advantage of this opportunity where there will be daily shows which the buyers will be attending. Patrons are also invited to view these shows to assist the performers with a live audience as the buyers listen in. Submission details are available on the website www.carifesta.net but persons wishing to register are expected to have:
1. Written work that has been recorded and performed in public
2. Written work that has been recorded and published in any of the forms (electronic or non-electronic).

Potential participants are also required to upload samples of their published music and upload their Electronic Press Kits for registration. The music must be original. Covers will not be accepted. Musicians will be at an advantage if they are a member of a copyright society. There is no cost to enter the showcase, however musicians are responsible for their own costs to attend the showcase. Backline equipment and technical support will be provided. Musicians are encouraged to submit the registration form found here (copy and paste in a browser): http://www.carifesta.net/events/grand-market-buyersshopping- mall/register-now/ by June 30th, 2017.
