Some of the world’s biggest stars including Jennifer Hudson, Kool and the Gang and Jill Scott will join other international and regional superstars for what is expected to be another highly successful Tobago Jazz Experience.
The week-long festival will take place between from April 18th and 26th 2015 and Tobago will again play host to thousands of music lovers who have made the Tobago Jazz Experience their annual pilgrimage.
There are expected to be some major new initiatives as the Division of Tourism and Transportation works to ensure the continued improvement and innovation in the annual event.
Secretary of Tourism and Transportation, Tracy Davidson-Celestine said she was excited by the quality of acts planned for the week of activities and said the Division wants to build on the success it had with large year’s TJE which headlined John Legend.
“The Division of Tourism and Transportation continues to invest in this project because it has the effect of benefitting ordinary Tobagonians. The hotels, guests’ houses and bed and breakfast properties are all full during this time. This means waiters, taxi drivers, street food vendors, bar owners are just a few who benefit from the T.J.E .” Mrs Davidson Celestine said.
She added that her division wants to encourage ordinary Tobagonians to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the tourism industry.
Mrs. Davidson Celestine added,; “The Jazz experience also helps to build indigenous Tobago businesses and I want to encourage Tobagonians to not be afraid and take the opportunities to be successful by getting into the business of tourism. When one looks at the people who are entrepreneurs and are in the tourism business one can see the economic potential and I urge particularly young Tobagonians to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the growing sector.”
