Rising Stars Perform At Honey Jam Barbados Showcase
Our top secret Barbados tip is a music one this week.
It’s a chance to see some of the island’s very best female artists performing live.
The Honey Jam Barbados concert at the Hilton Hotel will feature 17 acts. The performances will span the genres and include opera, hip hop, jazz, gospel, RnB and dance.
If the event launch last month is anything to go by, music fans are in for a real treat.
The line-up includes some new acts as well as more established artists. Barbados has long had a reputation for the performing arts – a reputation that is not limited to just Rihanna, that local girl made very big.

If there was any doubt about the range and depth of talent on the island, then you need look no further than 16-year-old Denesha Fergusson, one of many singers whose music talent was nurtured at church.
The dance group Riddim Tribe, which has recently worked with world famous saxophonist Arturo Tappin, will also be performing

Honey Jam was formed in Canada by Bajan Ebonnie Rowe, who expanded the operation to Barbados. It seeks to nurture the island’s exciting talent and provide a showcase for female artists in particular.
Honey Jam has already helped launch the music careers of many women, including the Grammy winning artist Nelly Furtado.
The all-female showcase is now in its seventh year on Barbados.
It provides educational, mentoring, networking, promotional and performance opportunities for young female artists.
“We want to give them a springboard to move forward in their careers with the hope they will reach the international stage and be great ambassadors for Barbados,” said Ebonnie.
