Each year, dating from the days of the Tobago Jazz Festival through to its successor the Tobago Jazz Experience (TJE), the April event has always featured some of the world’s top jazz, R&B, neo-soul, fusion and of course local and regional acts. Their sixth edition – which runs Saturday 19th – Sunday 27th, 2014 – looks to be no exception. As always, the event is designed to showcase all that Tobago has to offer by taking visitors on a tour of the island through concerts hosted in villages across the island.
This year’s edition will be headlined by nine-time Grammy winner, John Legend, as was announced today at a press conference hosted by Trinidad & Tobago at the World Travel Market in London, UK.

I knew about this man, I followed him on Twitter and liked his page on Facebook; I invited him into my life when I decided to pay attention to my spiritual self and redirect my dharma. It was at a yoga class given by my amazing teacher Jacqueline Quesnel that I first got wind of the fact that he was going to be paying us a visit – here – in Trinidad.
