Barbara Cadet biography

Barbara Ann Cadet's name is becoming more and more indelible in the musical tapestry of Saint Lucia. It is not uncommon for this composer arranger/composer to dedicate extended seasons to research, development and proper documentation of near extinct folk theatre music. Her work with poetry and theatre are also worth noting. Over the past six months she worked with Saint Lucian writer/poet Adrian Augier to produce two 90minute soundtracks for two productions. A former head of the Woodwind Department at the Saint Lucia School of Music, she undertook her musical training in the land of her birth, England having equal competence in musical theory. Her musical collaborations and experimentations are legendary as are her innovative musical projects. She recently opened her recording studio.
