Havana International Jazz Festival
January 12 - 20, 2020
The Havana International Jazz Festival, organised by Chucho Valdés, is an internationally renowned event, consistently attracting an excellent line-up, with gigs at various venues around the city. Cuban music has enjoyed a worldwide boost in popularity, largely due to the contemporary success of the Buena Vista Social Club, and rightly so. The Cuban music style ‘son’ was actually a precursor to the salsa style and excellent Latin jazz emanates from this island. This makes Havana a really authentic location for a jazz festival, with its rich musical heritage and unique atmosphere. The Hotel Riviera acts as the festival headquarters, whilst the Casa de la Cultura Plaza and the Teatro Nacional also host some of the performances.Read more
