Soca Star Destra Signs on for St Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival
By the Caribbean Journal staff
Soca star Destra is joining this year’s St Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival, organizers announced.
Destra, who will perform with the Bakanal Band, is among the leading soca artists in the region.
She will be joined by another new name to the lineup, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Chrisette Michele.
“As we launch the festival in Trinidad, one of our key Caribbean markets, we are thrilled to further diversify an already impressive line-up with the likes of Chrisette Michele and Destra,” said St Lucia Tourism Director Louis Lewis. “Destra is a leading lady and a true Caribbean music ambassador who has established herself in a business typically dominated by males.”
The two new artists join a lineup that already includes stars like Robin Thicke, Jon Secada, Jimmy Cliff and Flo Rida, among others.
