This is one of my favorite photos of the Panama Jazz Festival 2013 finale because it captured the delicacy and focus of Rubén Blades as he was preparing to sing some of his classics.
Congratulations to Fundación Danilo Pérez for organizing the Jazz Festival on a yearly basis, this year we were blessed with great concerts and workshops in the 10th version of the Festival.
Something different from previous years was the venue of the closing concert, in the previous years the venue was in 'Casco Viejo', but due to all the construction works happening in 'Casco Viejo' at the moment, the final concert had to change its location to "Ciudad del Saber' (City of Knowledge). The new venue was great, there was more space for people to join and enjoy the music and for kids to run and play, it just felt more natural and comfortable to me. Both venues (Casco Viejo and Ciudad del Saber) have their own charm and that is something that could be taken into account for future versions of the Festival.
Location: Ciudad del Saber, Panama
