Philippines International Jazz Festival

For seven years, the Philippines International Jazz Festival has gathered some of the finest musicians on the planet for an annual fortnight celebrating soul, swing, and multi-cultural bridge-building. This year’s edition, February 15-29, features Acoustic Alchemy, Gretchen Parlato, and the Queen of Jazzipino (jazz + Filipino) Charmaine Clamor, as well as dozens of Filipino, Indonesian, and Malaysian virtuosos. The PIJF’s success reminds us that with a solid groove and the spirit of improvisation, maybe we really can all get along.
