Republic Bank Continues To Support Carriacou Maroon & String Band Festival

St. George’s, Grenada. April 25, 2016: The stage is set for another exciting Maroon and Regional String Band Music Festival on the sister isle Carriacou, this weekend. Republic Bank continues to support this festival with a financial contribution of $5,000.00 (Five Thousand Dollars) to the festival’s organizers.

Spread across three days and three venues, the festival showcases traditional “smoked” food, dance, string band music and drumming, all distinct to Carriacou. Scores of patrons are expected to visit the isle for this event, which the organizers promise to be out of the ordinary, with musical “treats” from popular Caribbean artists, intermingled with the traditional big drum, quadrille and other “unique to Carriacou” performances. We encourage all who can, to share in this wonderful experience, while helping to preserve our rich traditions, for future generations.

Republic Bank remains committed to the preservation of our rich heritage and applauds the organizers for their unfailing commitment to the preservation of our culture and look forward to another great Maroon festival.
