Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has announced the official commencement of the construction of the Gros Islet Music Recording Studio.
“Looking forward to the opportunities which will be created for local musicians and producers upon the completion of this project,” Chastanet wrote Friday on his official Facebook page.
Last year Gros Islet MP Lenard ‘Spider’ Montoute announced the signing of a contract under the Basic Needs Trust Fund for the project.
“We are creating opportunities for our Musicians and producers in Gros Islet,” Montoute explained at the time.
The Music Recording Studio will be located at the Gros Islet Human Resource Development Centre.
Montoute disclosed that upon completion of the studio, musicians will have access to state of the art recording equipment and technical support to help improve the quality of their craft, whilst benefiting from assistance which will help take their creations “well beyond our borders.”
