Alicia Keys will headline the Barbados Jazz Festival in January which also includes veteran saxophonist Gato Barbieri on the lineup, organizers said.
The 23-year-old singer and pianist from New York has won five Grammy Awards — “Best New Artist,” “Song of the Year,” “Best R&B Vocal Performance,” “Best R&B Song” and “Best R&B Album.”
Other acts at the Caribbean island’s jazz festival, scheduled for Jan. 10-16, include Yellow Jackets, Kenneth Garrett and Pieces of a Dream from the United States; Kaeko Matsui of Japan; Barbieri of Argentina; Tito de Garcia of Puerto Rico and the Charles Flores Quintet featuring Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez and Giovanni Hidalgo.
Festival venues include the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium outside Bridgetown, the Colony Club Hotel on the west coast and the Farley Hill National Park in northern St. Peter, organizer Gilbert Rowe said on Sunday.
