Dominica’s Culture, Heritage, Nature on display

By: Staff Reporter,

    ROSEAU, Dominica - THE people and culture of Dominica are on display this week, as the world descends on the ‘Nature Isle’ for the 2023 World Creole Music Festival which, as they described, would be bigger and better than last year.


    The event kicks off this evening (Oct. 27) with the likes of Patrice Roberts, and the Discovery Dominica Authority (Tourism) has been showcasing the beautiful scenery for those regional and international media personnel and visitors who are on the island for the event.


    From its culture to pageantry, Dominica is showing the world that it is open for business, but it is the sights and sounds of the territory that capture the attention of visitors who have made the journey.


    The Indian River, one of the biodiversity and natural sites being preserved for its benefits to the ecosystem, was buzzing with activities yesterday.


    Interestingly, the territory is known for much of the world's habitats, and they were on full display, and Shakimar Augustine, Discover Dominica Representative, underscored the importance of the river which has a lot of history and traditions.


    Located in the northern section of the island in the heart of Portsmouth, the river is surrounded by a lot of  flora and fauna.


    The area is known for its traditional trees, White Crabs, Iguanas, Elephant Ear plants, fishes and other creatures native to the territory. For visitors to the island, they will be taken by paddle boats to a stop in the area where rums and other popular drinks are served.


    Strikingly, the river was also home to scenes in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Dead Man Chest. 
    Craft vendors are also out in their numbers weaving their work while visitors enjoy the surrounding areas.


    The 2023 World Creole Music Festival runs from October 27-29 and will feature some popular local, regional and international artistes in the genres of Creole, Reggae and Soca music.
