MUSIC & BEYOND brings you LIVE … in the park

Great Music…Naturally, begins here.

St. George’s Grenada, December 20, 2017:  8 diverse and incredibly talented musicians are set to wow an audience at a free LIVE performance concert on Saturday January 6th, 2018 at Camerhogne Park from 2:30pm to 5:30pm.

Under the auspices of Music & Beyond the locally registered non-profit organisation behind the Pure Grenada Music Festival, LIVE is one of the many initiatives geared at nurturing musical talent in Grenada. 

Musicians at LIVE are first invited to participate in a two-stage selection process open to all bands/musicians (citizens and residents) within Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique known as Ready for the Stage.

In this first phase, bands/musicians are asked to submit a short video of their band and or themselves doing a live performance of an original song.  All bands/musicians meeting the criteria are then given the opportunity to play to a panel of judges and live audience.  In it’s third year of existence the perfomance is being taken to Camerhogne Park in anticipation of sharing with an even larger audience the pure talent that Music & Beyond seeks to help harness and focus towards its ultimate potential.  These performances are also recordeded and artistes given further and continuous exposure via the festival’s online channels.

Musicians in the second phase include A#keem; Johnny 'Black Iron' Williams; Johnathan Francis; Lion Paw; Sabrina Francis; Thamara St. Bernard; Zamar Band and Zorina all of whom now have an opportunity to perform during the 2018 Festival based on their performance on January 6th.

LIVE reinforces the commitment of Music & Beyond to deliver on its mandate of assisting in the development of musicians across Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, including recognising talent, nurturing it, and providing the exposure and structure it needs to flourish.

Musicians, established and aspiring - and all who love music are encouraged to come out, participate, support, engage and learn more about Music & Beyond while enjoying some of Grenada’s best and as yet undiscovered musical gems.

Green Action

We are incredibly pleased to share the story of Tessa Charles, festival volunteer and now founder of Green Habitz.  Inspired the PGMF's mandate to vendors at the festival allowing only biodegradable food containers, Green Habitz  seized the opportunity to supply the required environmentally friendly food packaging. Addressing the audience at the official announcement she said, "To advocate change you have to live by example" and  what a great example this is of the further positive impact possibilities of this festival...truly, Music and  Beyond

Please encourage your family to think about ways you can

Pure Grenada Music Festival Number 3… It’s Coming!

Steering Committee promises to continue exceeding expectations 

Following the second successful execution of this now unmissable annual calendar event, the steering committee of the Pure Grenada Music Festival has announced the decision to host the third event, April 13th – 15th, 2018.  The official announcement was made to guests including Government Representatives, Partners, Sponsors, Donors, Volunteers and Media at the Venus Restaurant and Sports Lounge.

Preparations are now firmly underway with the Steering Committee and operational team reviewing and adjusting as part of their continuous improvement efforts in all areas, which affect stakeholder experience and the sustainability of the Pure Grenada Music Festival.

“Our learning curve continues,” says Dieter Burkhalter, Chairman of the Steering Committee.  “The aspirations of this festival have always been high, but we are committed to the delivery of the objectives we set.” 

The pillars of the festival remain exposure and opportunity for musicians in Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique; adding value for residents and visitors beyond the immediate music industry and consequently having significant economic and social impact.  In the face of obvious climate change repercussions, the committee is especially proud of the Green Initiative, geared at encouraging adoption of best practices with positive effect on our environment.  Tessa Charles, festival volunteer and now founder of Green Habitz shared her experience of the festival impact on lives outside of the music industry.

Burkhalter expressed gratitude was expressed to the Government of Grenada for their continued support and to the Grenada Tourism Authority, sponsors, donors and volunteers. He noted the team as fortunate to be so actively supported by stakeholders who share the vision of Music and Beyond – the non-profit behind the festival and reminded guests “that by assisting in the development of musical talent in Grenada, we all enable artistic expression; encourage originality in art form and performances; and allow every talented Grenadian musician the chance to achieve their fullest potential.”

As such, the selection process for Ready for the Stage has begun with a deadline of November 30th, 2018 for submissions by musicians.  In addition, an international music producer is secured to work with 5 Grenadian singers who will have the opportunity to perform 2 songs each on the festival main stage.  Another investment in local talent will see the provision of two workshops in the areas of sound engineering (theoretical & practical) and vocal training in the lead up to the festival.

A special collaboration has been formed with well known artists and soca monarchs Kellon and Kelson Ogiste (Luni Spark and Electrify) to deliver a musical project, which they promise will be exceptional and as never before seen.

Advisor to the Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation and Culture, Mrs. Brenda Hood, reiterated the Government’s belief in the event and the overarching vision of an international music festival in Grenada.  She urged everyone - sponsors, donors and volunteers - to continue to lend unwavering support to the cause that is Music and Beyond.

The organisers are confident that, the event will only get better in every conceivable way and encourage Grenadians at home and abroad, musicians and music lovers everywhere to join us for another truly phenomenal event.
