MARIGOT–Wonderland Factory’s debut concert “Les Pépites” at Loterie Farm on Saturday night brought together four of St. Martin’s top recording artistes, putting on a terrific show, singing individually or as an ensemble.
Malaïka Maxwell, Keno Baly, Jabz and Tamillia Chance impressed the crowd with their music and confident stage presence, each well supported by a backing band assembled by drummer Fred York.
Production of the show was first class, from the sound to the lighting, décor, and general ambience, blending in perfectly with the open-air garden venue. Luckily there was no rain.
Many children were present for the concert, clearly in awe of rising star Tamillia Chance. However, the overall turnout from the public seemed less than expected.
During the interval, the audience was entertained by the Lightman from Guadeloupe, a giant covered in LED lights, reminiscent of an Iron Man character. Other performers included Ben from “The Fire Show SXM” and the “No Fire Limits” stilt walkers.
Sunlight Events (Eric Fayon) produced the lighting for the show and sound was by Sound 2000 (Churchie York), and Christophe Bertrand played an important role working with the sound and lighting teams.
Wonderland Factory was created at the end of 2016 by Nadia Boukir and Emmanuelle Toulliou. Its purpose is to create events tailored for businesses and individuals and designed as shows.
Wonderland Factory is also the producer of performances (concerts, ballets, theatre) representing its core business. The company’s artistic director is qualified in performing arts. In this area, the company has accumulated 15 years of experience at the service of structures such as theatre groups, neighbourhood associations, festivals, and territorial communities, etc.
