It was wonderful to experience the 20th edition of the Dominican Republic Jazz Fest, especially because of its magnificent programming – all women artists! The DRJF 2016 presented a stellar array of international jazz figures including Esperanza Spalding, Tia Fuller, Patricia Zárate, Ingrid Jensen, Linda Oh and more, as well as a iconic exponents of Dominican music such as Enerolisa Nuñez and La India Canela. We also had a chance to chat with Patricia Zarate, who is a master music therapist as well as saxophonist and composter, and the delightful Enerolisa Nuñez who explained what Dominican salve is all about. Enjoy! Featured photo: Esperanza Spalding at the Dominican Republic Jazz Fest 2016. Photo by Gabriel Rodes.
