he South Florida Dominican Jazz Fest has positioned itself as the only event of Dominican culture that during Hispanic Heritage Month opens its doors to other cultures to display the musical talent from the Caribbean nation and raise it along with other leading International Jazz artists from around the world. Peter Landestoy has produced the event since its inception; the Dominican businessman is a lover of good music, coming from a family of musicians for several generations.

“We are trying to unify different Dominican artists with the international counterpart during the festivities of the Hispanic Heritage Month and embrace them all under the tricolor Dominican Flag”, says the producer Landestoy. This year the festival has partnered with the participation as an associate producer with Mandy Llanes, a Cuban impresario with 36 years of experience in the sector of Marketing, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Hialeah Chamber of Commerce.

“I am proud to be part of a historic event where we bring the classical music of Dominican glory Bullumba, artist that left its mark in so many countries, such as Mexico, and help bring his style of classical music for todays contemporary jazz, thus recalling the reality of our Hispanic roots,” explains Mandy Llanes. This event is made possible thanks to the support of their sponsors, the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic, Presidente Beer and Ron Barcelo. Three major representatives of Dominican culture.

From the conception the festival, the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic (MITUR), has maintained its sustained support to this initiative, given that in the past 8 years, this country has positioned itself as the number one destination in the Caribbean, given their attractive and varied complementary offers such as rivers, mountains, golf, adventure, music, and happy hearted people.
