The 25th edition Havana Jazz Plaza Festival took place from February 12-15. The event had nine venues in the capital and two side-venues at the Varadero Beach Resort. Havana Times photographer Caridad brings you some great photos from some of the many concerts, including the premiere performance of Chucho Valdes’ new band Akokan Ire.
