Blues And Jazz Festivals In Mexico

MP Mexico New Staff

One of the best ways to enjoy jazz is to let the music provide the soundtrack for a clear star-filled sky, and there is no better place to do that than in Mexico, home to many jazz festivals. If you are in Mexico during November, you are there at the right time to feel the beat.

In San Miguel de Allende the XIV International Jazz and Blues Festival is scheduled to take place from November 28th to December 4th. This year the free festival, one of the oldest jazz festivals, is continuing to grow and boosts four Grammy award winners.

Right next door to San Miguel de Allende is the city of Irapuato. This town will be hosting their VII Jazz Festival from November 19th to the 23rd. This city of unique colonial architecture adds its love of strawberries to the nights of jazz and stars.

The best know Mexican Jazz festival takes place along the Riviera Maya. With artists like David Sanborn, the best and most well known alto sax player on the world jazz scene; and the Grammy-winning guitarist and songwriter Earl Klugh, the free Riviera Maya Jazz Festival, November 27-29, starts every day at 6 p.m. and continues far into the night.
