2013 Habana Jazz Plaza (Havana International Jazz Festival) starts December 19.

The Festival will open with a concert at Teatro Nacional de Cuba on December 19, 2013 by Maestro Chucho Valdés, dedicated to his recently deceased father.

The 29th Festival Jazz Plaza 2013 will take place in Havana from December 19th to 22nd, and it will be devoted to Bebo and Chucho Valdés, as was announced by the event’s Organizing Committee during a recent conference  at the Melia Cohiba Hotel in La Habana.

Jazz Plaza 2013 will showcase the performances of important national musicians as: Chucho Valdés, Bobby Carcassés, Enrique Plá, Pablo Menéndez & Mezcla, Alexis Bosch, Ruy, Ernán and Harold López-Nussa, Roberto Fonseca, Rolando Luna, Emilio Morales, Orlando Cubajazz, Jorge Reyes and Joaquín Betancourt; as well as some other 83 invited artists from 13 countries, of whom have confirmed Arturo O’Farrill, Randy Weston and flutist Andrea Brachfeld from United States; Skaracas Jazz Ensamble from Venezuela; Adolfo Delgado from Spain; Pablo Sanguinetti from Argentina and others from Holland, Bermudas Islands, Brazil, Switzerland and Germany.

CIDMUC (Centro de Investigación y Desarrollo de la Música Cubana) this year will celebrate the theoretical event as in previous editions, and it  will be the space for the confrontation of creative ideas. The Casa de la Cultura de Plaza Center, the place where the Festival was born, will be one of the main venues just as the Teatro Mella, the Mella Gardens, the Avenida Hall and the Rumba Palace, with collateral spaces for jam sessions at La Zorra y el Cuervo club, Jazz Café, Café Miramar, El Lucero and the Melia Cohiba Hotel’s Habano House.
