The 30th edition of the International Canarias Jazz & Más Festival will be a celebration. Between July 1 and 25 , it will tour the eight islands with more than 50 concerts and more than 30 international, national and local musical projects , which complete one of the most ambitious posters in its history and with the Government of the Canary Islands as the main sponsor.

The festival completes its line-up with some leading classical and emerging figures, such as the pianist Fred Hersch , in a trio format; the marvelous voice of Liv Warfield ; the virtuosity on the guitar of Julian Lage ; and the carefreeness of a good number of bands that this year share that leg called ‘& Mas’ and that always offers projects related to jazz, such as soul or funk, and in which José James and his stylistic wealth based of neo soul, hip hop and drum ‘n bass; the large group that gathers around the Brooklyn Funk Essentials ; the Latin rhythms edged with soul and funk of the Cubans Cimafunk ; the soul garage of The Buttshakers ; or the always surprising miscegenation of Latin jazz with which Patax arranges songs by great artists, this time they arrive with the Beatles’ repertoire totally twisted.
