The Community of Communes of Marie-Galante and Région Guadeloupe confirm that Terre de Blues Festival’s 19th edition will take place from May 18 – 21, 2018 under the theme of « FANM DOUBOUT ».

With Jocelyne Béroard, Oumou Sangaré, Ky-Mani Marley, The Como Mamas, Kozeika, Diana King,Mulata Son, Mélissa Laveaux, Voukoum, Vayb and Lycinaïs Jean.
Once again, this year the program displays the promotion of our cultural heritage, the need to perpetuate the transmission of our savoir-faire. In this respect the Organisation Comettee of Terre de Blues Festival decided to honour the cornerstone, the center and the root of our West Indian society: women.
« Fanm Doubout » aka « Fanm Potomitan » is often depicted as the center of a family, the one that raises, the one that takes decisions and accepts her responsibilities.
Based on this evidence throughout West Indian families, she is also victim of social disparities that still prevail in our society.
This 19th edition pays tribute to all « Fanm Doubout », these women of character, women of legend, militant women, women of everyday.
As godmother this year the Organisation choose a woman of culture, woman of letters, woman of education and woman of Marie-Galante: Marie-Héléna LAUMUNO.
