CARIFESTA XIV-Glittering display of Caribbean culture.

The 14th edition of the Caribbean festival of Arts (CARIFESTA) opened here on Friday night to a glittering showcase of regional culture and the aspiration that in the not too far distant the boundaries that separate the Caribbean countries would be something of the past.

For the duration of CARIFESTA, the immense creativity and phenomenal skills of the region's artists will be on show in music, dance, painting, sculpture, handicraft, literature, and film to give just a flavour.

The festival also creates the opportunities for new and emerging artists to break into international markets.

CARIFESTA activities will be held throughout the twin island republic with the main stage at the Queen's Park Savannah in the heart of the capital accommodating more than 300 booths in the so called 'Grand Market'.

One of the major attractions at CARIFESTA, will be the international show that features some of the region's best known international acts like 'Shaggy' of Jamaica, Machel Montano of Trinidad and Tobago the French-based band, 'Kassav'.
