The second Vijazz event starts today in the Liceo del Taoro, La Orotava, and continues tomorrow as part of the celebrations of International Jazz Day.

24.06.2016 -

The Macaronesian Jazz Quartet will kick off proceedings this evening, presenting their exciting mix of sounds that range from Hard Bop through traditional to the most modern jazz.  Their eclectic and energetic repertoire is fresh and intense, but also offers some soothing and relaxing moments too.

After their show, O.M.T. will perform their incredible combination of live music with loops, samples and special effects that is sure to have the audience on the edges of their seats.  The collective of musicians come from jazz, rock, funk, Latin, and electronic musical backgrounds and it shows: their sound is unique and not to be missed.

Tomorrow, the Simbeque project will open the show, in a joint affair between teachers and students of the Asociacio?n Sociocultural Mousike?.  Led by guitarist Miguel Manescau, the group offers a reinterpretation of Canarian folklore music with a modern twist.

The event will round off with the Banda del Solar, a personal project of young trumpeter Natanael Ramos which combines different musical concepts from cultures as diverse as European, American and African.

Parallel to this there are two free events.  The EMM music school will perform this evening in the Plaza de la Constitución from 12.30pm, whilst tomorrow’s free entertainment starts at midnight and is a jam session to be held at the Café Quilombo in the Plaza del Quinto Centenario.

A must for all lovers of this immortal musical genre, tickets for this year’s Vijazz at the Liceo cost €10 for one night and €18 for both nights and can be purchased from various outlets in La Orotava town.  See: for full details.
