During this end-of-year period in Guadeloupe, parties are multiplying in nurseries, schools, associations, hospitals, companies, civil services etc. As we usually say, the presence of an orchestra in such circumstances always enhances the brilliance of the event, but we must have the means to pay the musicians. This Wednesday, December 18 between 1:00 p.m. and 3:15 p.m., “Caramel” played at the party organized by the public officials of the city of Pointe-à-Pitre in the former local premises of the firefighters in Miquel, a space that will soon be transformed into a public square as part of urban renewal… The most extraordinary is that this musical formation which was created 7 years ago and which is composed of eight excellent members including the conductor and drummer Jean-Claude Louis offered a completely free performance to municipal employees whose city has currently financial problems… All styles of Caribbean music were played such as kadans, zouk, konpa, “classic” biguine, biguine from Christmas carols etc. The beautiful voice of the singer and saxophonist capsized many hearts… This moment of conviviality and sharing delighted the officials who also had the opportunity to enjoy a delicious traditional Christmas meal including rice, Angola peas and pork.
