Jazz/Creole – “It’s a fusion,” says Dominica’s leading Jazz/Creole artiste Michele Henderson, who is also one of the Caribbean’s premier female vocal talents. Her description of the genre draws the Creole aspect of the music to the rhythm; while the language and chords, she says, are jazz.
“It makes for a refreshing blend; it is not something you hear all the time. To me, it’s brilliant, I love it,” Henderson said to The Daily Herald last Sunday, June12, following her performance at the second annual Jazz ‘n Creole event held at Fort Shirley, Cabrits National Park in Portsmouth, once the site of the most impressive military installation in the West Indies built in the 18th century to protect the north area of Dominica by the British and French respectively. cont./
