“The 2018 Dominican Republic Jazz Festival honors the contemporary global dimension of jazz and every night will be dedicated to different countries and their specific point of view on this music,” states Marco Pignataro, Artistic Advisor to the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival, and Managing Director of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute. “Jazz is truly a modern expression of democracy which keeps renewing itself through the creative encounter of music cultures around the world” Mr. Pignataro continues.
