Havana Jazz Plaza Festival
December 19-22, 2013
The International Jazz Festival of Havana featured more than 20 international bands, including some of Cuba's most revered performers, all extraordinary. The festival utilizes several venues including the beautiful Mella Theatre and Havana's Cultural Center offering a unique opportunity to experience some of the finest jazz musicians in the world in the city's most historic locations.
As long-time Havana resident and Pulitzer Prize winning author, Ernest Hemingway wrote "The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places." Cuba is a prime example of this notion, with a people that are the country's strength; a growing population of highly educated citizens (today there is a massive growth in the number of professional post-graduate schools) who focus on society, art and music.
We thoroughly enjoyed "The Forbidden City" for the jazz, the people and their passion for life!
