By María Dolores Rojas Vidargas
Each day, the opening of the nineteenth edition of the International Festival of Jazz & Blues comes closer. This year, it starts with a tribute to the Divas of Jazz, on November 13 at 7 pm in the Teatro Angela Peralta.
The tribute to the Divas of Jazz will feature Ingrid Beaujean, jazz and pop singer, who at an early age joined the world of music by belonging to a Mexican children and youth choir, that sang opera. She was also a professor of scat singing at the School of Music of the National Institute of Fine Arts (INBA) .
This Mexican artist has also dabbled in the media as a broadcaster, along with her sister Jenny, who has also formed a musical duo. Ingrid Beaujean currently combines jazz with pop and folk, which allows this singer to offer a unique perspective.
In this concert Ingrid Beaujean is accompanied by Adrian Flores on bass and Diego Flores on drums.
