Honors Juan Formell by Young Jazz Players in Santiago de Cuba
Young musicians from Santiago de Cuba will pay a deserved homage to the founder of Los Van Van orchestra in a musical tribute baptized "Jazzeando con Juan Formell" (Jazz Playing with Juan Formell).

Ivan Acosta y De Cuba Somos, Influencia and Francisco y su piquete are some of the young jazz musicians to honor Formell, who died in 2014.

The musicians will present their Jazz versions of emblematic Formell's songs at the Iris Jazz Club, a place opened in recent years seeking to promote this music style that in the city has both traditional and modern feel to it.

During his visit to this club in April 2013, Formell described it as fantastic and pointed to success because Jazz was rapidly gaining in importance throughout Cuba, particularly amid young people.

Formell also referred to his deep musical and sentimental attachment to this city, where the artistic legacy of his father Francisco Formell Madariaga is recognized. / PL.
