The International Jazz Festival at Guatemala City II by Hugo Muralles

Every year we have this wonderful International Jazz Festival hosted by IGA (Instituto Guatemalteco Americano).  In this press conference, hosted by Ana Sylvia Ramirez, the festival was announced also for Xela, Cobán and Antigua. Most of the concerts are free and the ones you have to pay, really worth it.

In the main picture, also appears the Guatemalan Musician Juan Carlos Murga, he shared some words with the journalists in the press conference, referring to the Jazz listening experience in general he said: “It is uplifting, is something that perhaps have not felt”.

The festival starts today and we have this all month of Jazz to enjoy.  By the way, this is the fifteenth edition.  The best of luck to both organizers and musicians!
