10 Days of Jazz Fusion Begins on June 5th

Gregory Vernon

The event will feature ten days of jazz fusion and will see the collaboration of local culture makers, business enterprises and globally renowned artists to promote the cultural and social love for the genre of music and its respective art. The event will be held from June fifth to the fourteenth and will travel to several municipalities across Belize.

“NICH felt it very fitting that we continue off the indigenous music festival that was held three years ago here in Belize and we are looking at once again bringing in international artists as well as local artists and also bringing to our country jazz enthusiasts that will be visiting with us and hoping that we’ll be able to get the hotels all filled with jazz fans that would want to come into the country. Our main goal this year are several festivals. In May we have the national festival of arts; in June we have the international jazz festival; we have the carnival launch in June. We have the Belize international film festival in July; we have the visiting Trinidad and Tobago youth orchestra in July; we have the national song competition elimination rounds in June-July. We have the national song competition finals in August as well as King and Queen, Jouvert and the Road March in September. And so this is a very packed year for us at the institute of creative arts.”

“We are going from Corozal to Cayo to Cayo where we are going to finish everything off; we’ll be stopping in at Belmopan at the UB Gymnasium. We are also visiting San Pedro and in Belize City for two shows; one at the Bliss and another one at the Memorial Park which will be our kickoff and inaugural event and then we are also going to be in Placencia. So all the guys involved, get ready for a nice tour. We will be playing music throughout the country for international people and our very own Belizeans as well.”
