Castro Valley will be the scene of the best jazz event you can find
After so many months of confinement due to the pandemic, which has ravaged the world, Castro Valley, California, will become the scene of a spectacular event that will make jazz and music lovers in general very happy. It turns out that, later this month, the second edition of the Annual Bay Area Latin Jazz Festival will take place, whose surprises will blow attendees out of water.
In this new edition, the event is expected to be an important contribution to jazz as a musical genre, but it will not be the only musical style that attendees will enjoy, as organizers have made every effort to make the festival as varied and diverse as possible. This means that there is a planned special emphasis on the Latin American and Caribbean influences that have made this genre what we know today, so the mixture of cultures that will be present there will be unbelievable.
The space destined for sales positions and counters will include businesses, food sales, handicrafts, community organizations, among many other things. However, the main attraction will be the great group of artists who have been invited to the Annual Bay Area Latin Jazz Festival, among which we can include Oscar Hernandez and his quintet Alma Libre, Bobi Cespedes, Carlos Rosario, Ricky’s Grupo Afro-Nativo, Rene Escovedo Latin Jazz Ensemble and much more. In addition, the festival will be attended by broadcaster Luis Medina, who kindly spoke with us and provided us with all this valuable information.
Mr. Medina from KPFA Radio’s Con Sabor and WorldSalsaRadio.com’s Sabiduria Con Tumbao will be the master of ceremonies for the event and DJ during breaks, which will allow those who attend to see Luis in one of his most exciting musical facets.
