St. Maarten – The organizers of the biggest Regatta in the Caribbean are proud to announce that Destra Garcia has been added to the entertainment line-up for the Heineken in what is expected to be a spectacular Soca performance on Saturday March 2 on the stage in Marigot.

Destra Garcia, born in Trinidad, remains the number one leading female soca artist of the Caribbean and is the most requested soca artist internationally because of her signature high energy performances.

Destra made her debut as a soca entertainer in 1999 and is showing no signs of slowing down, challenging herself every year, taking her music and her fans along for the exciting journey.

Destra has fans all over the world and has set the mark for high energy live sets that leave audiences wanting more. She firmly believes that you learn more as you grow, from experiences and from your mistakes. You are in charge of your own happiness. She’s determined to achieve her dream of taking soca music to an international level.

A guaranteed hit with music loving audiences everywhere, her energetic performances and eye-catching costumes dominate the cameras. Destra knows the ropes in the competitive music arena. Audiences and critics always have their noses in the air for the next best thing, but she is prepared and her maturity is evident in her demeanor, her command of the stage, her writing and her sense of self.

“I’m a lot more relaxed and focused. I’m not worried about stuff that has nothing to do with what I’m doing. I’m concentrating on maintaining my voice, using new vocal techniques. I am engaging in a higher level of spirituality in my preparation,” Garcia said.

“Everybody is experimenting to see if we could all take soca to another level. I think soca is already good, I’ve decided to see if I can make it more marketable. I’m all for experimenting but I want to keep most of the elements that already exist,” she continued.

“Destra is one of the best Caribbean artists, and her high energy music and positive lyrics are perfect for our event. She is the only international artist we have ever asked to perform twice, she also performed for the event in 2006, and that stands as an endorsement for her entertainment value. Destra and St Martin band Youthwaves on the Saturday night show is a sure hit,” John Leone, Heineken’s Distributor and party organizer adds.

Destra joins the event’s lineup including Orange Grove, international DJs Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano and the legendary band The Commodores for some “Serious Fun” for this year’s Heineken Regatta.

All the Regatta parties are free and open to the public. Food and drinks are available each night.
