Barbados’ leading soca band krosfyah and Edwin Yearwood, Damian Marley and Taurus Riley will be among an explosive line-up for the Sweet Sixteen Edition of the Dominica World Creole Music Festival scheduled for October 26 to 28 at the Windsor Park Stadium, Roseau, Dominica. Krosfyah appear on Saturday, October 27, and are expected to bring their ultimate party influence to the many fans and patrons of the event. Known for their infectious melodies, high-energy performances and pulsating rhythms that speak a language only one’s hips comprehend, krosfyah are sure to keep patrons dancing and singing all through their performance to popular hit songs, including Pump Me Up, Wet Me, Highway Robbery, Ride It, French Kiss, Sak Pase and Yardie Graduate.
