In just four years the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival has captured the minds and imagination of jazz lovers from all over the world, presenting such greats as Brazilian Grammy award-winning composer Ivan Lins and the legendary multiple Grammy winners, Kool & the Gang.
They have now voted it as one of the ten best jazz events of the year. Created by the Riviera Maya Tourism Board as part of its commitment to produce the best of life's experiences for those who visit this fastest growing tourist destination in the world, a jewel in the Mexican Caribbean, the fifth edition the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival 2007 promises to be the best ever.
It brings together jazz greats who number numerous Grammy awards among them and who have played with legends of the genre as well as pop and Latin stars that have topped the charts for decades.
Jazz buffs as well as music lovers in general will be treated to the extraordinary experience of seeing and listening to these masters perform under the stars, on one of Playa del Carmen's privileged beaches, "Mamitas Beach Club" with the waves of the Caribbean breaking on the shore as background.
And it is all for free; an unparalleled gift of music from the Riviera Maya Tourist Promotion Trust. We hope you will enjoy it.
