London Latin Jazz Fest 2019

Welcome to the 7th edition of the London Latin Jazz Festival. Each year, the festival brings a week of world class Latin and Latin jazz music to the exclusive, intimate atmosphere of PizzaExpress Jazz Club in the heart of Soho. 

Latin jazz began as a musical conversation between Latin musicians and the buzzing jazz scene of the US; today the genre continues to evolve by listening to the world, and the world listens back. New sounds emerge from cultures making music together; this year, we honour this with an array of artists whose influences are the result of us listening to one another. We are in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the globe; the London Latin Jazz festival is a unique opportunity to witness a line-up of sensational musicianship in a globally minded setting.

We present to you a collection of performances, some exclusively put together for the festival, honouring the musical traditions of Colombia, Cuba, Argentina, Brazil and Portugal, as well as celebrating where we are: London, a city with a simmering, multicultural musical landscape and a lot to say.

Make sure to get your tickets in advance - the festival was fully sold out the past two editions. We hope you enjoy this collection of hand-picked musical gems!
