Antigua’s Jazz Festival: Quinteto de Jazzuv

Quinteto de Jazzuv in Antigua Guatemala's Jazz Festival

Boy, didn’t I tell you that the best time of the year to visit Antigua Guatemala, top city travel destination, is during the Lent period.

Not only you get the opportunity to see all the processions prior to the world-famous Holy Week in Antigua Guatemala, you also get a chance to see all the Lent decorations, attend several shows from the Festival de Cultura Paiz; but you also get the opportunity to enjoy the Festival Internacional de Jazz en Antigua Guatemala for FREE; like the best things in life.

Well, it is the time of the year again and once again Festival Internacional de Jazz en Antigua Guatemala will include three acts: the Jazzuv Quintet from Mexico, the Jazz and Claps Quintet from Spain and Lalsax Quartet from Italy. If you remember, last year the Festival Internacional de Jazz en Antigua Guatemala included the Alain Derbez Jazz Trio from Mexico, the Jordi Albert Projet from Spain and the Be Little Trio from Italy.

Today’s photo are from the Quinteto de Jazzuv, an amazing educational and artistic manifestation project from Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico. Basically the Jazzuv Quintet is formed by a main academic base and top jazz music students in the making.

To me, to take photos of Jazz concerts in Antigua Guatemala is an exquisite experience since I get to photograph musicians against 500-year ruins backdrop illuminated by delightful color spot lights while listening the best music genre and my favorite music as well. What can I say, it’s sublime!

I sorry that I am not able to include music piece, like last year, but I hope the other photos make up for it. Please, let me know what you think of the Festival Internacional de Jazz en Antigua Guatemala and the first batch of photos from the first evening. I expect to hear you feedback. ;-)
