Terneille Burrows (TaDa)
Self-employed Recording Artist, Songwriter & Social Activist
Honours Diploma, Recording Arts Management, Harris Institute for the Arts, (2002)
I am forever grateful and honoured to have been selected as the recipient of a Lyford Cay Foundation scholarship. It provided a good portion of the financial means I required to pursue an honours diploma abroad.
I took the terms of my scholarship seriously and returned home to contribute in my field. The Bahamas can easily suffer from “brain-drain” particularly in under developed industries. I have found ways to positively impact the Bahamas in the areas of recording and performing arts. Over the past 12 years I have had the opportunity to do many things including host music conferences in Nassau and Grand Bahama; organise a local forum with International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) executives; represent The Bahamas at the 2011 World Music Expo (WOMEX) in Copenhagen Denmark; and Represent The Bahamas at the 2009 CARICOM Regional Cultural Committee meeting in Paramaribo, Suriname.
