The Barbados Jazz Festival
January 09 – 15, 2006

The Barbados Jazz Festival attracts major stars and thousands of visitors from around the world. The scenic and tranquil island hosts the thirteenth annual Barbados Jazz Festival from January 9th to 15th, 2006.

Headliners for the 13th annual festival include trumpeter Roy Hargrove with vocalist Roberta Gambarini, smooth jazz artists Norman Brown and Boney James, pop superstar Lionel Richie, and Latin giants, the Cuban Jazz All-stars.

The festival has an urban, relaxed feel to it and features contemporary artists in a heavy groove oriented pocket. Joining the leading artists is dance groove-mistress Jill Scott, and Indie singer/songwriter Cindy Alexander.

The festival venues showcase the island´┐Żs stunning natural beauty, with events held in both indoor and outdoor settings such as the historical Sunbury Plantation House and the breathtaking Farley Hill National Park. Several travel and tour companies offer packages.
