    cultural icon for real…..leaving portsmouth night after night to teach the other villages our traditional dances….being the first group to recieve the golden drum awards…..representing dominica in almost all the caribbean islands…..being the only group chosen to showcase our traditional dances on all cruise ship boats that came on our port…..recieving so may trophies that we were told that we need to agree to share a few prises because more groups need to go to cultural gala…being the first person to record both pieces of the belle on redio….songs like “how many grain of rice to make a pound” and “tabu ey mweh odilala lavi nous vley”….boy this woman was somethinng else…..i am proud of all of her achievements….Yes Dado
