He's the feature act at the Africa/Caribbean Pavilion at Grant Park High School.

But those won't be the only positive vibrations at the café.

Representatives from the Indo-Caribbean Paradise Pavilion at Sargent Park School will be on hand at 1 p.m. to discuss its entertainment, its curry-flavoured dishes and the frosty cold Carib beer and rum. Yum.

Three separate acts will perform on the News Café's stage -- some drummers and two sets of dancers.

The Indo-Caribbean performance will be streamed after 1:30 p.m. right here.
