Manizales, Colombia

Clara Lopez is the Jazz 'mom' in Manizales and is making big waves musically for the young musicians futures in jazz here in Manizales.
Clara, Roseanna and Marlene Saavedra.

We arrived yesterday morning to the discovery that Manizales is one of the most beautiful locations in Colombia. It is very San Francisco in it's terrain with deep hills and beautiful views.
We had an incredible concert last night in the beautiful Auditorio Universidad Nacional. They had to turn away 50 people. The audience was great and we had a jam with the local University students afterwards in the concert hall - big fun. Today is a day off - Laundry anyone?
