A Bouyon monarch competition which will feature between 7 and 15 participants competing for $21,000 in cash and prizes, is among the new additions for Carnival 2016.
Logistics coordinator for the Bouyon monarch competition Sherwan Andre is appealing to sponsors to support this new initiative, which is geared to promote Bouyon music not only in Dominica, but across the globe.
Andre says while he understands funds are tight, he is calling on the various business places to come on board as a sponsor or contribute in whatever way they can.
He says the main focus of the competition is to grow the Bouyon music, and make it into something that is exportable.
