The theme for the 2010 edition of the Vibrations Caraïbes Festival is “Amazons.” The public is invited to experience performances by exceptional women artists and to explore the intersections between three geographic regions: the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe, in all fields of contemporary creation: music, literature, visual arts, social sciences, and cinema. There will be concerts by Caribbean performers from Guadeloupe, Haiti, Cuba, Benin, Trinidad & Tobago, and the Bahamas; talks by leading writers and filmmakers; screenings of documentary films; and an exhibition featuring painting, photography, and design.
Events will take place from November 5 to 14, 2010, at the Maison des Cultures du Monde at 101 Boulevard Raspail, Paris, France.
Performers include Jocelyne Béroard, Calypso Rose, Mina Agossi, Emeline Michel, Diana Hamilton, Lully Damburry, and Martha Galarraga. Other well-known figures include writers Ina Cesaire, James Noel, Fabienne Kanor, Veronique Kanor, and film directors Euzhan Palcy and Mariette Monpierre.
On November 14, Bellevilloise will host the festival’s closing event, a Creole dance, with guest singers Steevy Mahy, Goldee, and Kate.
