This October, we kick off our second annual BRIC JazzFest with over 50 heavy-hitting jazz artists. And no celebration of jazz would be complete without a big helping of Latin jazz, so we are thrilled to have mainstays like Eddie Palmieri as well as rising stars like Colombian-born harpist Edmar Castaneda on the bill. In honor of this exciting lineup, we've pulled together a few of our favorite videos from our upcoming performers. If you are ready to move to the rhythms of these global artists, just press play below!
