Taipei, July 15 (CNA) Honduran band Hibriduz Jazz will be performing at the Taipei
Jazz Festival this year on the recommendation of Honduras’ ambassador to Taiwan, bringing a different kind of energy to the annual jazz bash.
The eight-member Hibriduz Jazz band will perform on the first day of the three-day festival at Daan Forest Park on the evening of July 17, complementing other acts at the festival from Taiwan, Italy and the United States.
Highly popular in Honduras, Hibriduz Jazz is hoping to continue presenting high-quality Honduran culture to the world after touring Europe in March.
“This is the best gift Honduras can give in return for the Taiwanese people’s kindness and passion,” said Ambassador Rafael Fernando Sierra Quesada, the driving force behind bringing the band to Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
