Culturama 43 Launch Set For Thursday!

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN) The 43rd edition of Nevis’ Culturama Festival is set to open in grand style Thursday evening (July 27) at the newly refurbished outdoor venue, the Cultural Village.

Charmaine Howell of the Culturama Committee tells WINN FM that the opening is going to set the stage for the many exciting events and activities scheduled for the summer festival.

“There are quite a few things going on during the official opening on Thursday. We’re having the opening ceremony which starts at 6pm and we’re taking this sort of journey through our folklore and the history of that all the way up to modern Culturama as we know it.

“Following that we have our Junior Kaiso competition at 8pm which will see ten junior Calypsonians take the stage to contend for the crown. They’re really excited about it and they’ve worked really hard so I think it’s going to be a really good show.

“Following that we have the Odisi band with Extasy Sounds; so it’s going to be a full night of celebration.”
