Monchy: Mizik En Kwéyòl was conceptualised in 2012 with an aim to promote local artistes and facilitate the participation of indigenous musical ensembles during the very popular Saint Lucia Jazz Festival (now rebranded the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival). In addition, the organisers, the Gros Islet Community Group, endeavoured to stimulate local economic development in the community of Monchy, by encouraging vendors to capitalise on the event by offering their goods and services to the public.
All in all, the objective of the event was to share in the spirit of the Saint Lucia Jazz Festival, promote ethno-musicality and contribute to the overall diversity of the Festival through greater local community participation.
The event was branded a cultural showcase of traditional music, dance, art and food.
