(ZIZ)– Destra, the Small Axe Band, the Mighty Explainer, Elvis Crespo, Patrice Roberts and Machel Montano’s representative were among those present at Thursday morning’s St. Kitts Music Festival Press Conference.
Destra told the audience there and the entire federation of her plans to pass on her knowledge to the future generation.
“Right now I took on someone called ‘Silver’. He is now a part of my band and he doesn’t have a single song on the radio but he was with me for the entire carnival season. He’s been recording but you know I want to make sure that he has a correct footing so that he doesn’t stumble,” she said at the event.
She said Machel Montano is also instrumental in helping younger talents.
“I think I would like to speak on Machel’s behalf as well to say you know we always try to encourage the younger artists, whether it’s imparting knowledge or giving them a space in the band to be themselves.”
Destra performed on the Thursday night of the three-night St. Kitts Music Festival which is being held at the Warner Park Stadium.
