The Tobago Jazz Experience stage will see Grammy Award winners India Arie, Dionne Warwick and Melanie Fiona along with a host of local and regional talent for this year’s Tobago Jazz.

The event was launched to the media at Jaffa’s Restaurant at the Queen’s Park Oval yesterday.

The Tobago Jazz Experience runs from April 20 to 28 and includes performances at Speyside, Signal Hill, Scarborough, Castara and the Pigeon Point Heritage Park.

The Tobago Jazz Experience is hosted by the Division of Tourism and Transportation of the Tobago House of Assembly and it is one of the many initiatives used to increase Tobago’s visibility in the local, regional and international tourism market.

The event planners dubbed the annual festival as an opportunity to promote the “Tobago brand”, which will stimulate economic activity for the Tourism Business Unit and showcase to the world everything the island has to offer.
