The Havana Jazz Plaza Festival and the UNESCO Programme Transcultura: Integrating Cuba, the Caribbean and the European Union through Culture and Creativity, have come together to celebrate the 2021 edition of International Jazz Day with an Online Concert and Creative Exchange in the Caribbean, headed by Cuban musician Roberto Fonseca, who presents the Plaza Jazz Band, along with invitees from 9 of the 17 Transcultura Caribbean beneficiary countries.
Funded by the European Union and implemented by the UNESCO Regional Office for Culture in Latin America and the Caribbean, the Transcultura Programme harnesses the integration power of jazz to continue building bridges among nations and cultures in the Caribbean, a horizon that constitutes its vital mission and inspiration.  

On 30 April, the 10th anniversary of the proclamation of International Jazz Day, the concert will be broadcast on the Facebook pages of the Jazz Plaza Festival, the Ministry of Culture of Cuba, and Streaming Cuba from 6:00 p.m. (Havana time).
