Several top regional and local cultural acts will headline the Tobago Emancipation Day celebrations this Sunday.

Drumming sensation Esoteric Drummers from St Lucia will join the best of the local stock which includes Wasa Foli International and Eniyan Wa from Trinidad.

Officials of the Tobago House of Assembly Culture Department, explained that because emancipation is commemorated every year, new and pioneering performances needed to be incorporated to make certain that local groups continue to be innovative, as well as, to expose patrons to exciting traditional art forms from other Afro-descended communities.

Cultural entertainment will also be provided by Tobago’s own Hands of Rhythm, Kay Alleyne, Leslie-Ann Ellis and 2010 Folk Fiesta winners, Kulture Klub Ensemble and the Itsy Bitsy Performers.

This year’s Emancipation Day celebration culminates the 2010 Tobago Heritage Festival and begins at 11 am with a street parade of representatives from various groups from Milford Court. The parade ends at the Pigeon Point Heritage Park with a cultural extravaganza.

“We want to make this Emancipation Day celebration as exciting as possible from the décor to the entire programme. We will be linking our heritage with our emancipation because it should be a learning experience and not just a party-type parade and cultural show.” One organiser told Newsday.

Authentic African dishes as well as local food will be available for sale. Information booths with various cultural artifacts will also be set up at the venue for public viewing and purchasing.
