Music is always an adventure. Mostly it’s an adventure in your mind as you weave in and out of lyrics and music stanzas, with gentle staccato and mellow moments offset by passionate crescendos and a multitude of experiences.
The musician, artist, composer, band, orchestra or DJ takes you on a journey that is an adventure of emotions. There’s nothing quite like great music to take you to new heights of understanding and expression. The stories and the poetry of music are often just as worth savouring as the sound.
For years music events have taken place in exotic locations that add new dimensions to the experience. But now we have a new type of Music Safari Adventure with the Vujaday Festival in the Caribbean Island of Barbados. It’s a multi-featured music festival that runs for 5 days in different locations across the island: On the beach, in plantations, on the rugged cliffs along the raging Atlantic Coast and in island night clubs, dancing on the sand.
The Vujaday Music Festival is an adventure in many ways, it is considered one of the most innovative holiday experiences anywhere.
The music is spontaneous and it is always different as it caters to to the mood of the place and the audience. About 50 world-renowned DJs, composers and artists from all over the world were present for the 2018 event. The theme is “House Music” and “techno”, but there are also lofty tunes and more passionate pieces like “Fever” by Italian sensation Francesca Lombardo.
In 2019 Vujaday returns to Barbados for a 5 day extravaganza from April 3 to 7. The full line-up of places and performers is being finalised now and already there are artists from the UK, Canada, USA, Spain, Sweden and Germany. Returning again for another Barbados music safari are Lee Burridge, Mikey Lion and Lee Reynolds. In all there were about 50 artists preforming last year and the full roster will have many new names.
The entire event is a happening vacation. 5 days in the Caribbean on the edge of winter is always a popular holiday. Now it’s combined with a unique musical adventure that criss-crosses the island of Barbados: Music playing to the waves.
