Fresh of their Carifesta 2015 performance in Haiti, dBURNZ and The Flashmob now set their sights on making the best use of this opportunity they have worked hard to earn.
Though oftentimes overlooked, there is no denying the fact that the arts are a unifying phenomenon. It is for this reason that the recently concluded Carifesta XII in Haiti was such a beloved event among Caribbean nations, the people, and the various artistes and performers from the participating territories. The 10 day festival ran from August 21st to August 30th.
Melbourne Douglas and his backing band more popularly known as ‘dBURNZ and the Flashmob’ were among several groups that represented Jamaica at the festival. Their performances began on August 23 at the Le Caye Beach Party where they were well received by an audience of approximately thirty thousand (30,000) patrons. Performances continued at several venues including Place Boyer and Champs de Mars Grand Market where the group closed the Jamaica Night Celebrations, performing after their musical colleagues Raging Fyah. Their final appearance saw them closing off Jamaica’s segment of the CARIFESTA closing ceremony at the Kiosque Occide Jeanty amphitheatre. With their original number, “Revolution” and rendition of Bob Marley’s “Could You be Loved”, they had thousands of people in a frenzy as they chanted “Say something, CARIFESTA!! Say something Aiyti Aiyti (Haiti Haiti)!!”
Appearing at Carifesta 2015 is just another indication of the growth of dBURNZ who began working with the members of The Flashmob in 2012. Through impressive performances over the past three years including performances at the previous Carifesta in Suriname with the UWI Pop Society, their prominence has grown tremendously as they continue to demonstrate their talent beyond Jamaica’s borders.
Other acts from Jamaica included Reggae band Raging Fyah, Amina Blackwood Meeks, Craft Vendors and dance troupes L’Acadco and the National Dance Theatre Company. The event – which is billed as a celebration of the region and its people – was thoroughly enjoyed by thousands of patrons.
