A Bebop Fiesta
It’s not surprising that the 15th annual iteration of The Riviera Maya Jazz Festival has such an amazing lineup. The festival takes place on beautiful Mamita Beach, with the susurrus of waves providing musicians gentle percussive rhythm—a setting too perfect for some of music’s biggest names to resist.
This year’s headliners are titans of their field. Grammy-winner Norah Jones will take to the stage Saturday night, with Bebel Gilberto on Friday. If you don’t know her by name, you’re sure to recognize his bossanova rhythms from many TV and movie soundtracks.
Entrance is free, but there’s a VIP area for maximum comfort. The festival runs November 29th to December 1st and music begins after dark.
