The 2010 Jazz festival in St Lucia promises to as exciting as ever and staying at the most luxurious villa is the ultimate experience. The island is sparing no effort to attract some of the best talent in the music industry. I have pulled together the various sites to check out to help you decide which events you want to attend – enjoy the experience. A Grammy festival would be a better title for the event as it includes no less than 5 award winners.
During the festival the villa rentals tend to get booked early so check out the local accommodation before it’s too late. Check out the best villa rental on the island: http://www.stlucia.cc.
The top artists who have a Grammy include:
Toni Braxton. Check out her web site for a flavour of her great sound: www.tonibraxton.com
Her hits include – You’re making me high, Un-break my heart, Yesterday.
Shaggy who has been around forever and whose silky smooth voice is being used on some GPS systems!! But we know it wasn’t him. Check out this site: www.shaggyonline.com
Ne-Yo, is a great male vocalist. Check out www.macys.com/ne-yo his song “Heroes” which is available for free download.
Corinne Bailey Rae – Her new album is out now. Check her tour out on: www.corinnebaileyrae.net
Steel Pluse a band that like to raise the roof is planning to wake your senses – www.steelpulse.com
Most of the top artists will be able to see Akasha villa rental from back stage at Pigeon Island. We are sure they would be impressed if they rented our villa. So if you fancy renting a villa overlooking the stage you may want to think about renting Akasha the luxury villa rental.
In addition there are many other top class artists. These include: Laura Izibor, a self taught musician born to Irish mother and Nigerian father who has won the Meteor Music award. Check out her sound: www.lauraizibor.com
Jean Luc Ponty – a great sound, check it out on his site: www.ponty.com
Quito & the Edge who are reggae with attitude, check out their MySpace: www.myspace.com/quitoandtheedge
No doubt the artists will be booking in to the best villa – so if you want to rent a villa before the artists the take a look at www.stlucia.cc there is nothing better on the island.
Choosing a villa in St Lucia can be difficult – most of the villas tend to be traditional and not offer the kind of facilities most modern travellers expect. Akasha has features that no other villa rental has. We have a dedicated air conditioned home theater for 9 people to relax in reclining leather chairs to watch the jazz on a 110 inch screen if you don’t fancy trekking to the event(s).
Our St Lucia villa rental is less than 5 minutes from Pigeon Island and the Gaiety theater where most of these top artists will be performing. When you are done there the main restaurants and bars are only a 5 minute ride away from our villa rental.
