Promoter of the Mas Domnik 2017, Val Cuffy has stated that there are “tremendous opportunities” to promote Dominican music, especially during this time of carnival, by using media outlets both locally and abroad to promote tourism.
He said that there must be a highlighting of Dominica as a product and stressed that “Next year is a very important year for Dominica. We celebrate 40 years as an independent nation, we are celebrating 21 years of the World Creole Music Festival, and we are celebrating 30 years of Bouyon music. So we are going to have a 40:21:30 celebration, so it is important that we get this right and get our country into the right focus and we all rally the support that we need to make Dominica’s Carnival great again.” [. . .]
