The event’s program will consist, as in previous editions, of the “Leonardo Acosta in Memoriam” International Jazz Colloquium at the Cuban Art Factory in Havana from January 23 to 27.


According to the festival’s journal, the 18th academic section “is ratified as a space for reflection and debate on issues related to the national and international jazz scenario” on the basis of a wide range of theoretical and practical activities.


The agenda will consist of a selection of keynote speeches, panels, lectures, audiovisual screenings, master classes, and presentations of phonographic products, whose themes will focus on improvisation and heritage research.


The festival will also evoke the heritage of prolific jazz exponents such as Louis Armstrong from the Hemingway Collection, the legacy of Cuban jazz musicians in the Diaspora, and the results of Cuban performers in the Jazz Piano Competition of the Montreux Jazz Festival.


Outstanding musicians such as Cuban-American Pedrito Martínez and Dayramir González, Chad Lefkowitz-Brown, Aaron Goldberg, and Patrice Fisher (United States); Chango Spasiuk (Argentina), Florian Weber (Germany), among others, will attend the symposium.
