Speaking at the brief presentation at the Ministry of Tourism and Culture’s Conference Room, Minister Baptiste noted that she had witnessed the Agape Drummers’ performance during the Ministry’s 2003 Drama Festival and was delighted that they would be representing St Vincent and the Grenadines at the festival. She encouraged the group to make this country proud and pledged her support to the development of culture and cultural artistes in the country.
According to Rodriquez, the ten-member group which has performed in the Community Drama Festival, Nine Mornings Activities and other charitable concerts and cultural events aims to spread the message of love through the creative arts, by the use of the drums. The group will leave St. Vincent on Friday for Grenada.
