Belize Caye Fest: 
Coming Back Bigger & Better In 2011 


  






Belize Caye Fest brought prominence to the Los Angeles Belizean Community in the 80’s and 90’s, exposing Belizean musical talent, and presented Belize’s cultural, economic and social productions.

The Caye Fest had been the only real Belizean diplomacy in the Diaspora then, communicating Belize’s cultural values, musical richness, its strategic geographical location in the world, and its multi-cultural heritage. It bridged the gap between Belizeans at home and abroad, and brought Los Angeles Americans to view the largest Belizean community in the United States. Reminisced by many Belizeans as to when it will return, the Fest plans to come back even bigger and better this year.
    
“After considering promoting the festival again this year and networking with two other Belizean promoters here in L.A.,” said Patrick Barrow of Da-Yabra Productions and one of the early pioneers of Caye Fest. “We agreed to bring it back on another level this year since it’s been 10 years that it hasn’t been done.”
     
This year’s festival will showcase Belizean artists from the old and the new. From Super G to bredda “DAVID” OBI, right on  down to Bella Carib and Ras Indio.  From Danki  Man to Michael Wagner all the way to Harrington Trapp.  Some of the new artists that will appear for the first time include Nicole Kimbrough, a bright young female vocalist who is the granddaughter of the legendary Mr. Peters, the Punta sensation Garif, and the one and only Captain Roby. Also making first time appearances are Brad Pattico and his traditional Belizean folk songs, the rising Belizean reggae vocal  sensation Eljai. Other Belizean artists like Georgette Lambey, and the sensational band Caribbean Dynamics, will also make appearances on the two-day summer festival that should bring out an enthusiastic audience who has been waiting for its return.
    
Since this year’s festival comes on the eve of the popular 4th, of July holiday in the United States, and commemorating American Independence Day,  Los Angeles Belizeans will have a treat to their own cultural corner, expressing their connection to their adopted home. This kind of cross-cultural pollination is one of the main objectives of the producers of the Caye Fest, who wants it to bring as many Belizean and American cultural institutions together. There will also be an added attractions “Children’s Fair” area special event for the children ‘Face Art Painting’ and entertainment hosted by the Global Beat, since it’s the tradition of the festival to educate Belizean-American children about Belizean culture.    

“The Caye Fest is where you will see a melting pot of cultures in Los Angeles come together,” said Clarence Cattouse of Ras Khatuce Promotions, also one of the producers of the festival, and who has hosted it on several occasions. “It also brings Belizeans from New York, Chicago, Miami, L.A. and Belize together.” 

This year the producers plan to attract as many Belizean businesses, government, products and media from Belize. The festival committee wants to continue present the positive and productive aspects of Belize that many people have not experience to continue to challenge Belizeans at home and abroad to present the best side of Belize. 
   
 “We want to send a special invitation to all Belizeans in Belize, the U.S. and around the world,” said David Arana of ER Entertainment and another one of the producers of the Caye Fest this year. “Come on down to the Belize Caye  Fest this year.”
