The National Cultural Foundation presents FOR DE CULTURE: a new podcast hosted by Paula Anne Jackman and featuring Barbadians in the Arts sharing their journeys and their success blueprints!
Episode 1 premiered last Thursday on the NCF’s YouTube, Facebook and IG TV and featured vocalists/musicians Ray Vybz and Krisirie sitting down for their first real chat since leaving the Barbados Community College Music program six years prior. The episode opens with the two performing at Ray’s recent production “Catch De Vybz Show”, a concert which also featured the High Synergy Band and Leigh Phillips, and was part-sponsored by the National Cultural Foundation’s Technical Assistance Grant. The podcast, which amassed over 1700 views across platforms, deep dives into the musician’s stories until the pair end the show with advice for aspiring creatives.
Episode 2 premieres at 6PM, Thursday November 5, 2020 and features published Barbadian authors NEC (Never Ending Creative) and Shakirah Bourne.
All episodes are filmed at the NCF Cultural Ambassadors Studio. Check out Episode 1 below!
