Often compared to the likes of Bruno Mars and Wyclef Jean, Sherwinn “Dupes” Brice is the featured artist for this month’s Ponm Damou Poetry Slam.
Customarily the featured artist is a poet but Kensley Charlemagne, Manager of Ponm Damou Kreations, the host company, has said that the Ponm Damou Poetry Slam is more than just poetry.
“It is a showcase for the performing and visual arts. The poetry slam gives a stage to musicians, singers, dancers, actors, filmmakers, comedians, cartoonists, artists and the like. Ponm Damou is full spectrum when it comes to the arts; we go the whole nine yards.”
“We are proud to have Sherwinn “Dupes” Brice as our featured artist this month. He is one of the people, along with his manager who has encouraged us on the concrete road called Arts; harder in Saint Lucia than almost anywhere in the world,” says Kensley. “Dupes is no stranger to the Ponm Damou stage as he was one of the featured acts for our first hosting of the world renowned annual 100 Thousand Poets for Change event which happened last September. In fact Dupes allowed us to use his song “Imagine” as the theme song for that event last year.
Sherwinn “Dupes” Brice is a singer, songwriter and producer who hails for the South of the island. The son of Samuel and Esther Brice, Dupes shows command over multiple genres of music with an aptitude for mixing and matching genres.
