      Barbara Cadet
      Define This!

      Clearly, Barbara Cadet has launched into a deeper conversation in her upcoming
      2011 CD “Define This!” - Coming from a full decade of paying back dues,
      arranging intricate musicals, birthing or nurturing new talent and contributing to
      the documentation of music from St. Lucia’s folk theatre archive, Define This! Is
      strictly Barbara about her own business. Jazz rich, lyrically explosive and
      singularly authentic, the 13 track Collection gives a powerful testimony of her
      stylistic diversity.
      This new conversation draws deeply on pure, undiluted Jazz rhythms. Steeped
      however, in her effortless poetic lyricism, raw emotion and a voice that seduces
      like the slow spreading heat of Tequila; this new compilation is hardly provincial.
      It’s for the universal stage that has known the smoky, expansive signature of a
      Cassandra Wilson, or the vulnerable, but sophisticated styling of Jill Scott.
      In between the crisp, impatient “ The Definitive” title track and the languid
      tribute [to her grandfather] “That’s All”, there is a delightful unveiling of the
      accomplished arranger, the avant garde musician / songstress and the
      definitive Barbara Cadet.
      A former head of the woodwind department at the St. Lucia School of Music,
      Barbara studied music in England where she was born and lived for some time.
      With her roots in Saint Lucia, and clearly destined to music , Barbara in an
      undisputed heavyweight in the industry in the Caribbean. She has lectured
      on Caribbean Music at the University of Miami and her musical
      callaborationsand experimentations are several and legendary. She has performed
      throughout the Caribbean Jazz circuit- Martinique,
      Trinidad & Tobago, Aruba, Grendad, Barbados, Guadeloupe,
      Cayenne and Jamaica, and has opened for Tanya Maria, Patti La Belle,
      Anita Baker, and Spro Gyra, among several others over the 20 year span
      of St. Lucia Jazz. In February 2004, Barbara was awarded the St. Lucia Medal
      of Merit (Gold) for her long and meritoriuos service in the field of music
      Her work with Poetry, Theatre and Dance Productions are also worth
      noting.. Supported by the Cultural Development Foundation and the
      St. Lucia Heritage Tourism Programme, she collaborated with the
      original composer of the musicals of one of the regions most acclaimed playwrights
      to score, arrange and produce “Songs from the musicals of Roderick Walcott
      ( twin brother to Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott) for the mass
      market. The project spans various genres from indigenous Folk to Latin, from Jazz
      to Country and Western. She worked with ST. Lucian award winning
      writer/poet Adrian Augier to produce Soundtracks for Theatre Productions
      , for the St. Lucia’s 25th & 30th Independence Celebrations
      “Anthem” & “Esperance” and several Dance Production Soundtracks for local dance
      companies. Barbara was also commissioned by the St Lucia Air and Sea
      Ports Authority to produce the Soundtrack for the St. Lucia Animation
      Centre featuring a twenty-five minute multi-faceted presentation of the History
      of the Land of St. Lucia.
      Her musical collaborations and expimentations are legendary as are her
      innovative musical projects. Barbara was instrumental in the establishment of
      award winning All-Female Steel Orchestra “Allegro Pan Groove”
      as well as the All Female group “Sisterhood” who performed Main Stage
      St. Lucia Jazz Festival 1999.
      In 1992 Barbara was invited to perform for the 28th Birthday Party of the Prince
      of Morocco at the Royal Palace, Rabat.
      In 2008 Barbara launched her Jazz/Folk Cd “Indigenously Yours” on Main
      Stage, St Lucia Jazz.
      In May 2009 Barbara headlined alongside Moroccan born Paris based Virtuoso
      Percussionist Khalid Kouhen, Main Stage act for the Festival.
      Barbara Cadet was featured as the face of the 2009 “Lime” St. Lucia Telephone
      Directory and over the over the years made many local Newspaper Covers.
      Her unique vocal attributes have impressed no less than Ellis Marsalis, and
      she has had the honr of exchanging notes with the likes of McCoy Tyner,
      Michael Brecker and the Legendary Denis Chambers.
      Currently commissioned by the St. Lucia Tourist Board, Barbara is Producing

      aficionados and collectors of the genre, more so as the Caribbeans’s few
      successful and recognized Female Jazz Apostles.
