For the fourth consecutive year, the paradisiacal island of Koh Samui will play host to the Samui Latin and Jazz Week. This fantastic showcase begins in the evening on 29 September and there will be concerts running right until 6 October 2013.
So just what can you expect from this week long event? A jam-packed programme of 40 renowned International and Thai Artists performing a mix of uplifting, energetic and danceable Latin music, as well as smooth, melodic Jazz tunes. So whether you’re an aficionado or a relative newcomer to either of these genres, there’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy.
The concerts will take place at eight different venues around the island, culminating in a main stage event on 4 and 5 of October being held on the beachfront of Amari Palm Reef Koh Samui, who are sponsors of Samui Latin And Jazz Week.
