Jazz vocalist Somi delivers one of her popular hits during her performance on Thursday night at the St Lucia Jazz Festival.
Not highly knowledgeable on the genre, I was a bit hesitant when called upon to go to Saint Lucia to cover its annual Saint Lucia Jazz Festival. How would I do it justice, I thought? After all, I had only become familiar with the brand and appreciated its smooth and soothing delivery after my Barbadian grandmother would fill the house on an early Saturday morning with the voices of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Charles Mingus, and Herbie Hancock, while she mopped the floors. But to speak of it proficiently, I was not qualified.
High on the hills of the Southern Range overlooking the shores where Venezuelans are often smuggled in, lies a volcano that looks unique when photographed from above. It is the Anglais Point volcano which emits a steady multi-coloured flow of mud slurries that reaches 700 feet down to the Palo Seco Beach.
Dhalpuri (spelling may vary) is the messy, nutty, spicy roti that is notoriously known for being labour-intensive. It’s not that difficult to make though and the reward is out of this world. Dhal is boiled with curry and saffron, so it’s intensely aromatic from the start. It’s then seasoned with geera and parched to develop a roasted flavour and texture that cannot be mimicked.
From gummy, sappy rice to undercooked, dry rice—we’ve all had our issues with cooking rice. Admittedly, it can be tricky. The type of grain, pot and method can affect whether you get fluffy, perfectly cooked rice or a disastrous mess. Many little things contribute to poorly cooked rice. Here are a few common mistakes that you may be making and should avoid.

Work. Dance. Tutor. Study. Repeat. Work. Dance. Tutor. Study. Repeat. That was my life for 18 months when I decided to obtain my masters degree via distance learning. I comforted myself in the knowledge that it would not be forever and to be honest, I was too badmind to quit, but there came a point where I really thought I was walking a tightrope with regards to my mental health. Although my education was my priority (money was not to be spent in vain), all the activities of my lifestyle prior to school remained part of my day-to-day activities. I was sleep deprived to say the least, depending on approximately three hours of sleep from day to day.

The first 3D seismic tomography model of the Piparo mud volcano. This 3D model allowed the researchers to understand the intricacies of the ground beneath the Piparo area, to see the size and shape of the mud chamber and to understand what are the key controlling factors for the mud volcano's location and future eruption.
Geologists say pressure is building up beneath the surface of the Piparo mud volcano giving credence to the possibility that there could be an eruption sometime in the future. Active changes have also been seen on the surface and subsurface of the volcanic vents which erupted 22 years ago, displacing 31 families and killing livestock and birds.
