2009 Destination Guadeloupe New York Festival: the program

17 November 2009
Destination Guadeloupe festival which runs from 18 to 22 November 2009 in New York (USA) is intended to promote the French Caribbean island in the great capitals of the world. What Guadeloupe has to offer is unique on many levels, from the stimulating visual imagery that animates the paintings of Joel Nankin to the culinary mastery of visiting chef Georges Césarin. These bastions of the island’s creativity will serve as two companion pieces to high-powered music ensembles that spotlight many hypnotically indigenous styles, among them Gwo-ka drumming, Jazz Gwada and lilting Zouk; these are key among the earthy, modern sounds that supplanted an earlier, pre-millennial Guadeloupe-New York sensation, the once-influential dance style called biguine.
