The Teatro Cervantes in Malaga city will next month once again be the venue for the International Jazz Festival, this year celebrating its 34th edition.

Tickets for the six shows that make up the festival, which will run from 6 to 11 November, have just gone on sale for between 24 and 30 euros each, with discounts of 25 per cent if tickets are purchased for all six concerts, 20 per cent for five and 15 per cent for four.

A journey around the world set to the backdrop of West Indian rhythms gets the festival under way on Friday 6 November. Young drummer Michael Olivera leads the Cuban Jazz Syndicate, a sextet that has won several awards and been nominated for a Latin Grammy.

This is followed the next day by the fusion with flamenco roots of pianist Chano Domínguez, in tandem with multi-instrumentalist and singer Diego Amador, while another highlight will be when the best jazz film soundtracks are brought together by composer and double bassist Kyle Eastwood, son of Clint, on 8 November.
