Saint Lucia has a wonderfully vibrant music scene, and a special place in its heart for jazz in particular. The very first Saint Lucia Jazz Festival was organized in 1992, in an effort to extend the tourist season. It was so successful that it quickly expanded in scope, receiving international coverage by media outlets like BET and cementing its place as a bookmarked jazz tradition in the festival calendar. Some illustrous past performers include music industry legends like Harry Belafonte, Chaka Kahn, Al Green, and Diana Ross. 
Last year, the annual Saint Lucia Jazz Festival was revamped and relaunched in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center to become the "Saint Lucia Jazz Festival Produced in Collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center". The jazz music extravaganza, under its' newly formed incarnation, will take place from May 7 to 9, 2020 at various intimate venues and public spaces throughout the island such as the Ramp on Rodney Bay and Gros Islet Park. The first wave of the festival’s lineup was recently announced, featuring some of the finest names in jazz music alongside acclaimed local talent: Chick Corea's Vigilette with Carlitos Del Puerto, Marcus Gilmore, Willie Jones III and Renée Neufville, Alphonso Horne and the Gotham Kings, and Ruben Fox's London Brass featuring Theon Cross and Mark Kavuma. Alongside the stage shows, there are a number of exciting side events including master classes, professional development initiatives, and live performance collaborations with local musicans and students from the Saint Lucia School of Music.
