Jennifer Hudson and Jill Scott join line-up for Tobago Jazz Experience in April

The Tobago Jazz Experience will take place this April and will feature a series of renowned musicians and artists.

The festival will take place on the island of Tobago in the Caribbean from 18th to 26th April, 2015 and this year's line-up includes world-class starts such as Jenifer Hudson, Kool and the Gang, and Jill Scott.

Organised by the Division of Tourism and Transportation, the festival attracts music-lovers from all over the world and after the success of last year's event which was headlined by John Legend, organisers are hoping that this year's festival will be even bigger.

Tracy Davidson-Celestine, the Secretary of Tourism and Transportation, explained:

"The Division of Tourism and Transportation continues to invest in this project because it has the effect of benefitting ordinary Tobagonians.

The hotels, guests' houses and bed and breakfast properties are all full during this time. This means waiters, taxi drivers, street food vendors, bar owners are just a few who benefit from the T.J.E."

As well as attracting international holidaymakers and supporting local tourism companies, the festival is also aiming to help individual local companies in Tobago.

Mrs. Davidson Celestine also added:

"The Jazz experience also helps to build indigenous Tobago businesses and I want to encourage Tobagonians to not be afraid and take the opportunities to be successful by getting into the business of tourism."

Tobago is one half of the twin-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. The country is home to beautiful white-sand beaches, warm turquoise ocean waters, majestic mountains, and lush forests and rolling hills.

Holidaymakers can enjoy tours of the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, the Emperor Valley Zoo and Botanical Gardens, and Fort George.

The nation has an array of thriving nature parks, rainforests, and cascading waterfalls, and water-lovers can scuba dive to Buccoo Reef in Tobago and discover vibrant coral gardens within shallow crystal-clear ocean waters.
