Discovering Guadeloupe – Nov. 2018
Spending time in Guadeloupe was really an eye opener to colourful living – bright retro vintage buildings, characters of life. Sunshine music mixed with rainbow food.
The Rhum Road sailing race of single handed highly skilled yachtsmen racing across a dangerous stretch of ocean from St Malo to Guadeloupe is a big event in the Guadeloupean calendar that gave me an opportunity to see the country, to network and prepare for playing at The Blues Festival in May 2019 on the Marie Galante Island.
Rhum, music, sea and sand – Excellent mix – beautiful place.
