Fans eagerly await Havana's annual feast of jazz and its four days' worth of concerts, jam sessions and workshops. Claiming to be the ultimate Latin music event in the world, its popularity speaks for itself. Titans of jazz such as Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Haden have graced its stages, while the star of the show is Cuba's own Chucho Valdes, who usually performs with other local artists and international guests in the grand finale concert on the final night. The festival marks a good time to visit the city of Havana for the buzzing atmosphere and the fact that many touristic activities operate on a discount.
