Introduction

The Tobago Jazz Experience (TJE) is a celebration of jazz and the indigenous music of Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean. Staying true to its promise of offering "much more than music" however, the Tobago Jazz Experience incorporates the cultural and historical practices that define the island of Tobago as an ideal destination.

Visitors can indulge in the gastronomic experience that is the authentic dirt oven bread indigenous to the village of Castara; take a walk off the beaten path into the Main Ridge Reserve; immerse themselves in cultural treats such as the goat races at the new Buccoo Goat Racing Facility; or take in a history lesson during a tour of Fort King George – all the while, interacting with a warm and welcoming people notorious for their vintage brand of hospitality.

Early Jazz Experiences featured celebrity performers such as George Benson, Erykah Badu, Randy Crawford, Chaka Khan, Joe Sample and Trey Songz. This year, Angie Stone, Janelle Monáe and Emeli Sandé will command the stage, supported by an impressive cast of local and regional talent.

The Tobago Jazz Experience is owned by the Division of Tourism and Transportation of the Tobago House of Assembly and it is one of the many initiatives used to increase Tobago's visibility in the local, regional and international tourism market. The annual festival presents an opportunity to promote the Tobago brand, stimulate economic activity for the Tourism Business Unit and showcase to the world everything the island has to offer.
