Some Of The Artist:
The Port-au-Prince International Jazz Festival, a non-profit event, features an unprecedented cultural assembly to a local and international audience and is one of the best example of successful partnership between the international community via embassies of Belgium, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Mexico, Panama, Spain, Switzerland and the United States of America, the public sector through Haitian Ministry of Culture and Tourism and local private institutions and sponsors such as Prestige (Heineken), Rhum Barbancourt, Sogebank, Mercedes-Benz, Air France and Delta.
The Haiti Jazz Foundation manages the steering organization committee (Embassies, ministries, private sector representatives) in order to administrate the logistics for the bands, scheduling, and booking of concerts and venues, as well a marketing and communications for the event.
