Adrian Dutchin was recently listed as the recipient of the 2014 Guyana Cultural Association Folk Festival Award in Brooklyn, New York.
Adrian Dutchin was duly recognised for his accomplishments in the performing arts that are representative of the inspiration derived from Guyana’s rich cultural heritage.
His span of appearances in the Guyanese and Caribbean Diaspora with a cross section of top artistes has been impressive over the years, and this has led to him being a recipient of the award.
The Guyana Cultural Association Folk Festival Award ceremony is an annual event in Brooklyn, NY. The committee will present awards to individuals for their work that represents meaningful contributions to the improvement of inter-ethnic dialogue and feelings of trust in Guyanese society at home and in the Diaspora.
In a recent interview, Dutchin thanked the committee for considering him for the award. He said that the award serves as a motivation to aim for bigger things. He is currently on that track since he is expected to release two singles shortly.
He dedicated the award to his fans for their support over the years and more so, his family. The proud father of two is also the recipient of the West Indian Music Award (WIMA) for Best Performer of the Year which he won for two consecutive years (2012 and 2013).
Dutchin also received the award for the Best Soca Song in 2013 with “Jook”.
