Last weekend’s passing thunderstorm and bad weather forecast didn’t stop thousands of fans from coming out and enjoying an evening of fun and music during CARIMI’s first concert held at Espace Kami of the Cultural Center Tibaou in New Caledonia. Headlining the evening, CARIMI drew the largest crowd to date to the Center. Fans of all ages trekked through the center to reserve their spot close to the stage, said a Haitian Times Showbiz insider. Shortly after the band began to play, the clouds moved away and clear skies brought even more people. One reporter mentioned he has never seen so many people at the center singing and dancing to a foreign band. CARIMI is still chart topping band in New Caledonia.
