Have you ever been to the Boquete Jazz & Blues Festival?
If you like live Jazz or Blues music, I highly recommend it.
It is a bit rarefied. Not that it is fancy. Far from it.
But it is pricey.
In Boquete, where there is such a disparity of wealth, you can feel a bit privileged by attending.
To help ameliorate that privilege guilt, part of the proceeds go to help a really excellent music program for kids. One of the days, the kids come and put on a show.
With or without, feeling privileged, I really enjoy myself there. I delight in dancing to live Blues music.
If you will be in the Chiriqui Province in late February, you should consider attending.

Their website is greatly improved. It has a lot of easily accessible information about the events and the line ups.
The Festival runs from Feb. 22nd – Feb. 25th, 2018
Live & Invest Panama Conference
This year I will have to miss the first 2 days of it.
When I said yes to speak at Live & Invest Panama conference, I didn’t realize it overlapped with the Boquete event.
But I can make it to both.
By the way, if you are still in the information gathering stage about Panama, you may want to check out the Live & Invest Panama (LIOS) conference.
I would never have thought of going to such an event, but now that I have attended one, I understand its value. I wrote about the 2018 LIOS Panama event (Feb 21 – 23rd) here.
Maybe I will see you at both events.
We have written about 2 of the Boquete music festivals we have attended.
