Reggae and dancehall legend, Buju Banton’s “Long Walk to Freedom” tour will touch down on Dominica for the 21st edition of the Dominica World Creole Music Festival, with a much-anticipated performance on Saturday October 26, at the Windsor Park Sports Stadium in Roseau.
The “Gargamel” is slated to release his magic on Night Two of the WCMF, together with a line-up of other top acts, for what is expected to be one of the biggest nights ever at the Festival. He is expected to attract festival-goers and music lovers from across the region and from the Dominican diaspora in North America and Europe.
The “Gargamel’s “walk” to Dominica, is a return to his roots, in a place where he earlier found a massive fan base and a place to fully immerse with nature and his Rastafarian roots. His “walk” to Dominica is part of his line-up of performances this year. He made a triumphant homecoming, on March 16 in Jamaica, delivering one of the performances of the century at the National Stadium in Kingston.
Since then, this consummate showman, has traveled and performed for enthusiastic and massive crowds in the Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, British Virgin Islands, St. Kitts and at this year’s Reggae Sumfest on July 20th in Montego Bay, Jamaica. He has also toured Europe, performing to his adoring fans and music lovers in several European States including, Germany, Switzerland, Portugal, France and Germany.
Buju’s successful “Long Walk to Freedom” tour epitomizes the artiste musical depth, his deep connections with fans, his positive and dynamic music and his rallying call for social justice and human rights across the world.
WCMF fans can therefore expect, this dynamic music icon to deliver a sterling performance with many of his big hits, including Destiny, Untold Stories, Not an Easy Road, Champion, Give I Strength, and Hills and Valley.
