Labowi Promotions will not produce Jazz in the South in 2015. Jazz in the South, which began in 1996, was conceived and managed as a community-based cultural festival dedicated to quality Creole Jazz and World Music, capable of attracting diverse audiences from home and abroad, with a strong educational component (master classes, workshops), giving Caribbean musicians based in the region and the diasporas an opportunity to meet, share and create, and contributing to the content and impact of the Saint Lucia Jazz (and Arts) Festival. In recent years, producing this festival has become increasingly difficult, and this year we have concluded that the conditions no longer permit us to remain consistent with our vision and our objectives and to produce Jazz in the South in a manner that is satisfactory to all our partners and to ourselves. We thank all those who have made this journey possible.
