“The Voice” winner Tessanne Chin and reggae star Barrington Levy will be headlining this year’s edition of the St Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival.

Jamaica’s Chin and Levy will be joined by Grammy and Tony Award-winning Dee Dee Bridgewater and P-Square.

The festival was officially launched last week with a ceremony at the Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort.

This year’s 12-day festival will begin on April 30.

“This year’s event is building on a resurgence of fresh artistic direction infused into the festival in 2013, thus providing the perfect opportunity for scores of local artisans, entertainers and cultural enthusiasts to command world attention at scenic vistas across the island,” said St Lucia Tourism Minister Lorne Theophilus.

Also on hand this year will be Cuban composer Omar Sosa, Soca star Alison Hinds and Puerto Rican singer Elvis Crespo, among others.
