About Ocho Rios Jazz Festival
26th Annual Jamaica International Jazz Festival – Ocho Rios Jazz promises exciting mix of Jazz, Mento, Samba and more.
The 2016 celebrations will see the 26th Annual Jamaica Ocho Rios International Jazz Festival showcasing a musical feast of different genres of music during its week-long concert series across the island.
Started in 1991 by musician and journalist Sonny Bradshaw as an experimental one-day event, the Festival has become the Caribbean’s complete jazz vacation, featuring the greatest names in Jamaican Jazz as well as the very best on the international scene. The aim was to help redefine the Jamaican musical landscape and enhance the tourism product by providing an entertainment atmosphere suited to the entire family.
The Festival has developed and established itself as a recognized authority for promoting and showcasing distinguished international as well as Jamaican and Caribbean Jazz musicians/artists. Its format is one of a kind and is dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the jazz genre.
