International Jazz Day in Havana on April 30, 2017

Plus: Other Items of Interest

INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY IN HAVANA, APRIL 30, 2017


April 30 is the 5th annual International Jazz Day, and Cuba is the host country for the All Star Global Concert this year!  Actually, there is more or less a week of activities around this day, and more than 50 prominent artists from 14 countries (including, of course, Cuba) are participating.  Best of all, the website http://jazzday.com/concert/   will be streaming a special concert live on the 30th.   For a lot more information, visit the website just mentioned.  The lineup is stunning, and this writer deeply regrets not being there in person.   


New Website for the Instituto Cubano de la Música

The Instituto Cubano de la Música has an excellent new website, and even though they tell me that it is still a work in progress (what website isn't, really?), it already has a lot of useful information. 
Check it out at  http://dcubamusica.cult.cu/


Film:  Esteban by Jonal Cosulluela with musical score by Chucho Valdés


I will be watching this in Chicago this week, but I believe that it is traveling the festival circuit now.   It is the Director's debut, and it is about a boy who is musically gifted.   You can read more
here


New from BIS Music:  Cuba y Puerto Rico Un abrazo musical salsero


Not the first Cuba-Puerto Rico project by any means, but the promo video looks and sounds promising.    More after this writer has tasted more of it.    


CUBADISCO 2017


Cubadisco 2017 is coming in a couple of weeks.   Watch for more information soon.

ERNÁN LÓPEZ-NUSSA TO PLAY GLOBAL CUBA FEST

10th Anniversary of Festival March 18th

 

ENGLISH:  Even though he is universally recognized by knowledgeable listeners in the United States as one of Cuba's most important pianists and Jazz artists, it has been many years since Ernán López-Nussa has been presented in a festival setting worthy of his stature in a key US city, so his presence at the 10th Anniversary of Miami's Global Cuba Fest is welcome news. The anniversary event takes place March 18 from 7pm-11pm at the Miami-Dade County Auditorium, and the event features several other notable artists. 
You can read a lot more information about the artists, the festival schedule (which includes other dates), and how to by tickets HERE. 
Kudos to FUNDarte for bringing Ernán to Miami!




ESPAÑOL: A pesar de que él es universalmente reconocido por oyentes conocedores de los Estados Unidos como uno de los pianistas y jazzistas más importantes de Cuba, ha pasado muchos años desde que Ernán López-Nussa fue presentado en un festival digno de su estatura en una ciudad importante en los EE.UU., por lo que su presencia en el 10 º Aniversario del Global Cuba Fest en Miami es una buena noticia. El evento de aniversario se llevará a cabo el 18 de marzo de 7 pm a 11 pm en el Auditorio del Condado de Miami-Dade, y el evento cuenta con varios otros artistas notables.
Puedes leer mucha más información sobre los artistas, el calendario del festival (que incluye otras fechas), y cómo comprar entradas AQUÍ.
¡Felicitaciones a FUNDarte por llevar a Ernán a Miami!
