Starting today the City will be filled with mellifluous notes from saxophones, pianos, clarinets, trumpets, guitars and other musical instruments as the annual international Jazz festival kicks off. Renown American pianist, Kenny Werner, will be inaugurating the event at the Teatro Coliseo starting 8.30pm whilst a photo exhibit and free concerts by local and international musicians will be offered at the Centro Cultural Recoleta throughout the week. Other activities including screenings, conferences, classes, interviews and of course live acts, including a show by Brazilian mandolin superstar Hamilton de Holanda, will be held at the different bars and stages of Buenos Aires whilst every night will end with a spontaneous jam session at the Trastienda Club in which musicians and public will be welcome to participate.
