NEW FIRE is a series started by musician Gerry Anthony Williams when he realized that some of the best musical talents in the country actually couldn’t find forums to perform and thus the country was being denied the opportunity to experience these amazing artists. The live interaction between audience and performer is a profound exchange and goes beyond simply experiencing the variety and depth of musical talent we have in Trinidad and Tobago. It is definite action to make our society better.
NEW FIRE has been growing in popularity since it began in January 2014. The concert series has been forming many alliances with other major events such as the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival in an effort to effect positive societal transformation through the arts. As Williams, who is the leader and voice of the band West Indian Rhythm Konnection (WIRK), puts it – “New Fire is a flame that is illuminating the way to a West Indian Cultural Renaissance.”
NEW FIRE is excited to be part of the tradition and looks forward to sharing the evolving expressions of our culture.
