The night does not stop and the Berklee Global Jazz Institute says it will be present one more year at the Panama Jazz Festival, this time with GRAMMY® award winner David Sanchez, recognized worldwide as one of the best saxophonists of his generation, with an undeniable mastery of the instrument and an unmistakable sound.

In addition, the festival will host the 4th Symposium of Cultural, Artistic and Musical Expressions of Panama's Afro-descendants, an academic and social look at those artistic manifestations that have permeated and shaped Panamanian culture. This symposium prepared by Professor of Sociology at the University of Panama Gerardo Maloney, represents an excellent opportunity to learn from experts and artists, valuable information about those expressions and rhythms that are present in the daily life of the isthmus.
