Who: Maturity Music

Country: Trinidad and Tobago

Profile: Maturity Music is a leading film production company for Trinidad & Tobago.

Assistance received: The business received funding from the Direct Assistance Scheme for a project to promote a new international album by Calypso Rose.

Impact: As a result of the project a number of tangible opportunities were derived:  

  • a major touring opportunity for Calypso Rose with 12 dates in France and in UK from mid-July to mid-August 2010 (including the prestigious Barbican Theatre in London and the popular WOMAD festival in Reading)
  • the filming of Calypso Rose’s show in Les Escales in St Nazaire, France which resulted in a movie and DVD to be released in June 2010
  • finalising the ROSE CALYPSO DIVA documentary with a newly built site www.calypsorosediva.com and a trip to film Calypso Rose in Africa at the end of March 2010


What beneficiaries have to say: “The Direct Assistance Scheme is crucial for our development; we would not have been able to achieve all this without the grant. The project has been very successful.” – Managing Director, Maturity Music, Jean Michel Gibert.
