“We often hear about our neighboring Caribbean islands but we don’t meet each other as often as we would wish. An event such as Karukera One Love is the perfect occasion to create partnership, networking and friendship between Caribbean nations. It is the first time DJ Private Ryan and Walshy Fire will come to Guadeloupe, which is often unknown from our peers, but we welcome everyone to experience that Caribbean love. Music is an excellent vector.” explained Thierry Reynaud, co-founder of Karukera One Love.
