Internationally-acclaimed songstresses Angie Stone, Janelle Monae and Emeli Sandé are set to headline the 2012 Tobago Jazz Experience which kicks off tomorrow, Saturday 21 April. The opening night’s concert, entitled Jazz in the East is set to sizzle with some of the biggest names in soca, including Kerwin Du Bois, Nadia Batson and the Roy Cape Kaiso All Stars.

Grammy nominee Monae, known for her funky, experimental sound, will take to the stage on 27 April, along with Brit Award winner Sande, for the World Music Night. Reggae heavyweight Barrington Levy and soca and chutney groups Kes The Band and Dil-E-Nadan complete the night’s line up.

The national instrument, the steel pan, gets its own night at Panzzazz on 28 April. The concert will feature accomplished arranger Anise Hadeed and former national Panorama champions BPTT Renegades. Local talent will be showcased throughout the nine day festival, which also takes patrons on a tour of Tobago’s most beautiful beaches and venues.

Grammy Award nominee Stone, famous for hits such as I Wish I Didn’t Miss You and Brotha, closes the festival on 29 April at the Beach Jazz Fiesta at the Pigeon Point Heritage Park. She will be joined by regional and local stars such as Arturo Tappin, David Rudder and Theron Shaw.

Shurwayne Winchester, Prophet Benjamin, Patti Rogers and Ella Andall are all billed to perform during the festival, showcasing the energetic, soulful, spiritual and conscious styles of music that Trinidad and Tobago have to offer.
