Musbi (Music in the Bicentennial), combined with the Ministry of Culture of the Mexican Federal Government, Hermes Music Foundation, Performers of Mexico and the Single Union of Music Workers, to stage the International Jazz Festival.
Now in its 8th edition, it took as its setting the emblematic Monument to the Revolution in Mexico City.
Over the course of 3 days, the bill featured Mexican and international musicians, who presented different styles of jazz to create a rich and varied show. The opening day saw performances by Waldo Madera Quintet, Javier Nandayapa Fusion Cuatro and Roberto Aymes y su Música. The following day Héctor Infanzón Orchestra, Marco Morel Guitarra Octet and Dannah Garay Quartet appeared. And on the final day, Bob Sands & ChuchoLópez H. Big Band, Los Bronces and Jean Paul Bideau Official Quintet performed.
Lighting for the show across the 3 days was all entrusted to fixtures from PR Lighting, the professional brand distributed in Mexico by Hermes Music. Featured in the show were 12 PR Lighting PR-2482 Phantom, 8 PR-8541 XLED 4022RZ, 12 PR-2203 XR 200 Beam and 6 PR-8127 XLED 3019. From PR Lighting’s economic Junior series the stage also featured 12 JNR-8083D JNR PAR COB and 18 JNR-8154B JNR PAR Zoom B.
The versatility of the different lamps ensured that each of the fixtures gave an excellent performance to achieve the desired textures, colours and environment for the concert. This applied not only to each group performing on the stage itself, but also the Monument to the Revolution, whose structure was illuminated with different designs and gobos.
