Haiti - PAPJazz 2020 : An exceptional poster, 8 days of celebration
With the political and social situation, the preparations for the 14th Edition of the International Jazz Festival of Port-au-Prince, which will take place from January 18 to 25, 2020 under the high patronage of the Ministry of Culture, have been much more complex to implement this year, the programming schedule has been reviewed 12 times, the spaces of the free stages have been modified several times, partner embassies have withdrawn, several sponsors from the private sector, out of breath had to give up their participation or have reduced the support, fortunately others on the contrary have made themselves known and will be on the road with the Festival.

PAPJazz 2020 returns for 8 days of celebration, forty concerts, mostly free, and ten workshops, not to mention the "After Hours" which are very popular with festival-goers.

An exceptional poster with the participation of 15 countries : Germany, Belgium, Canada (guest of honor), Cuba, United States, France, Great Britain, Guadeloupe, Israel, Martinique, Haiti, Netherlands, Dominican Republic, Switzerland and Taiwan.

Artists from Haiti and abroad will be meeting headliners such as the unmissable Dee Dee Bridgewater, recipient of 3 Grammy Awards, the legendary American a cappella group Take 6 recipient of 10 Grammy, Dawn Tyler Watson, a Canadian blues singer who will undoubtedly set the mood, the German-Liberian Pat Appleton and his resolutely modern jazz, the young American smooth jazz saxophonist Jazmin Ghent, the Guadeloupe saxophonist Jacques Schwarz-Bart accompanied by the Haitian-American Elizabeth Charles.

The festival this year is under the sign of creations and returns, with in particular Yilian Canizares Cuban-Swiss singer who will present his new project ERZULIE of Haitian inspiration and will be accompanied by Paul Beaubrun, or Mario Canonge our favorite pianist Martinique who will play with Annick Tangorra, Ralph Thamar, and Michel Alibo.
