Digicel has collaborated with local drama club, Dramacan to create and produce two podcasts that will be available on GoLoud and PlayGo. Both apps can be downloaded free from the Google Play and Apple app stores, and offer users access to great local and international content.
GoLoud is the ultimate audio experience with the best in local radio and podacasts, while PlayGo offers users the best sports, movies, news and local shows live, from any device, or on the go. The podcasts Dah Eh Tru and Improvise This are set to launch this August and will have five pilot episodes each.
Digicel has committed EC$19,000 to Dramacan in order to assist with production costs. As a performance and production company, they are focused on promoting drama on all levels and produce creative content spanning live theatre, film commercials and events. This marks Dramacan’s second content partnership with Digicel as the club also has a play called Gwo Pwel Rehabilitation Centre available in the PlayGo app.
Kareem Louis, Marketing Executive at Digicel said: “We’re happy to be working with Dramacan once more, because we see the work that they’ve been doing in Saint Lucia, and it has value, not just from an entertainment perspective, but educationally as well. We are committed to helping develop and support local content and we’re confident that these new works will be well received.
Dah Eh Tru will explore topical issues and trending topics in Saint Lucia and around the world, keeping listeners engaged and entertained as they catch up on the latest. With no topic off limits, the host, Danielle Dubois, will tackle anything from what’s going on social media, to sex and relationships, all while keeping it classy.
For the comedy fans, Improvise This will feature some of Saint Lucia’s finest jokesters, on-demand, doing random skits. Digicel Ambassador, Kiedel Sonny will be among the featured comedians on the podcast.
Danielle Dubois, founder of Dramacan, and host of the upcoming Dah Eh Tru podcast said: “The opportunity to get this support to execute creative content, not only for local but regional consumption is a blessing and the beginning of a new chapter for all of us as collaborators on this project. This is a very proud moment for me personally as a creative, but I am even more humbled by the support and love from Saint Lucia’s best creators who have rallied to be part of this movement. Saint Lucia can be sure to enjoy high quality, creative content on the PlayGo and GoLoud Apps from Team Dramacan, Creedkool, Moyra Media and Allbiz Media. Thank you Digicel and thank you for fueling our dreams and providing this platform to create and share our talent and stories with the world.”
