About the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival
The Dominican Republic Jazz festival is one of the biggest cultural events in the Caribbean, with twenty years of history. Annually presenting a series of free concerts on the North Coast of the DR, the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival has enjoyed participation by internationally acclaimed artists such as the prestigious GRAMMY Award winners Esperanza Spalding, Chuck Mangione, David Sanchez, Ray Baretto, Nestor Torres, Chucho Valdes and Arturo Sandoval, Ignacio Berroa, John Patitucci, and Joe Lovano among others.
24th edition to take place on November 11 and 12 on Cabarete beach
After a two-year break due to the health crisis that hit the world, the event returns with more force to offer “the music of musicians, jazz”, to the hundreds of people from all over the country and tourists from all over the world.
It will feature the participation of national and international artists, such as the Equatoguinean-Spanish singer, Buika, who stands out in different musical genres such as flamenco, jazz, tango and boleros, as well as Grupo Bonyé, with a repertoire that includes son, guaracha, montuno, traditional son, salsa, salve and merengue.
In addition to the presentations of important musicians and singers, the DR Jazz Festival 2022, offers an interesting agenda that includes different free musical educational workshops, jam sessions for those who want to improvise, as well as activities for the whole family.
Thanks to these concerts, more than 80 children with limited resources will benefit from classes in different musical instruments such as piano, drums, saxophone, guitar, bass, violin, cello, among other instruments, using Jazz as a teaching platform.
Hope to see you on the beach and enjoy magic music together! You can check the official program of the event on this website
