She said there are several staff members who are working long hours and behind the scenes to ensure the success of the festival.Meantime a new activity surrounding the Annual World Creole Music Festival has been given two enthusiastic thumbs up from the officials of the Dominica Festivals Committee.Deputy Chairman, Sobers Esprit.Deputy Chairman of the Dominica Festivals Committee Sobers Esprit says Friday Dwivé which is held every Friday at the Krazy Kokonuts has been an excellent invention, creating a bigger buzz around the festival.“We are celebrating our culture and our music and we are letting the world know what the WCMF is all about. We have achieved a lot. I want to say in a big way a thank you to the Festival Dweevay. It is a great invention and in many ways has helped the festival and I want to say thank you. This weekend we will have the swinging stars so we want the rest of Dominica to join us,” he said.He said the festival is a team effort because it involves large number of persons working both behind and in front the scenes.Meantime Proprietor of Krazy Koconuts Frankie Bellot is calling for more appreciation for the annual event.“Everybody wants our festival but we have it and we don’t appreciate it. I don’t think government should be pushing the WCMF. Government should just be facilitating the way. It has to be the private sector. It’s about time we stop depending on government to do a festival that’s benefiting the entire country and the private sector.”He said the WCMF is an engine of growth and should be adopted by the private sector.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Share LocalNewsWCMF 2011 WCMF 15 days away…organizers say they are ready by: – October 13, 2011 Sharelast_img
