HAVANA, Cuba, Jan 16 (ACN) Jazz Plaza is currently a great success and has been enthroned in Cuba as one of the most important festivals, that fills me with pride because I see that my contribution has been to Cuban culture, said in this capital the musician Bobby Carcassés.
In an interview with the Cuban News Agency (ACN) he assured that when he created this event he never imagined that its importance was so great, which is why he is moved to see how great figures from all times of jazz come to Havana to share their music and how in each edition colloquiums and debates are held that contribute a lot to the country's culture.
There are several nations present in this edition," he said, "such as Japan, Puerto Rico, Mexico, the United States and Peru, and each one brings its point of view, its vision, its way of feeling jazz.
The public that attends the Jazz Plaza concerts should expect the miracle of seeing a work of art that is created in the moment, is like taking home a great prize that can be unpublished and unrepeatable, said Carcassés.
Playing jazz is a kind of magic for him, since according to the ACN, "the musician who is improvising is in a state of ecstasy, he closes his eyes and leaves the physical plane completely although his feet remain on the ground; and when he finishes his improvisation and listens to what he has done, he doesn't believe it himself," he said.
