Photo of the Day

Photo from the 5th annual International Jazz Festival, held on the Lomo de Tiscapa (hill overlooking Managua, and home to the huge Sandino statue, as seen in background). There is growing interest in Jazz music here, and a number of Nicaraguan bands participated, as well as groups from around the world. International groups included  Underkarl, Trío Flinta, Tito Puente Jr, Two-Five Jazz, H2O, Praxis, Interface, Marta Sánchez Quartet. Nicaragua Edmundo Guerrero, a big promoter of jazz here, was also involved. This concert was free, and coincidentally, Sandino looks green in this light. It was St. Patrick’s Day…
