Launched to promote the Dominican tourism product and create a world class platform for indigenous Dominican music, the World Creole Music Festival has become a renowned staple on the regional music gala calendar. Over a trinity of enthralling evenings beginning on the final Friday in October each year, patrons are treated to a cavalcade of star power, emanating from the Caribbean, French Antilles, Africa and North America, arranged to thrill the seasoned festival goer and novice alike.
The festival has given special focus to musical genres with roots in various forms of musical fusion from various countries from the Creole-speaking world. To date, musical forms which have gained exposure at the festival include Cadence-lypso, Kompa, Zouk, Soukous, Bouyon and Zydeco.
