The Alliance Française SVG, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture, is celebrating the Francophonie (French speaking celebration) with a special concert of Fethi Tabet and his band, from France.{{more}}

The band, which plays world music with Andalusian-Arabic influences, came in 2010 for a Caribbean Tour and performed at Heritage Square for the International Music Day in June. They are now back on the general request of the public and will add Jamaica and Guadeloupe to their Tour this time.

This concert will be opened by a guest appearance by SKARPYON and is a fund raising event for a student’s trip to Martinique.

In July 2011, Martiniquans children were hosted by Vincentian Families for the first part of the exchange. A programme of English classes and historical and cultural activities to discover the country were organized by the Alliance Française, and it was really successfull. In 2012, Vincentian students are expected to travel to Martinique for the second part of the exchange.

The concert will be held on the International Day for the Francophonie, March 20, 2012, at Peace Memorial Hall from 7:00pm.
