February 2019 is THE month for the big world tour. After his tour through South Africa, Silvan Zingg went to Mont-Dore, France to participate at the famous Sancy Snow Jazz Festival. For the 30th anniversary of this festival, he performed four fabulous concerts together with his Trio.

Only a few days later, the three musicians traveled on to Panama in Central America. The Trio was guest at ‘The biggest little festival in the world’ – The 13th Annual Boquete Jazz & Blues Festival from 21st – 24th February 2019 on the slopes of Volcán Barú in Boquete, Panama.

The festival started on 21st February 2019 with a Mardi Gras Parade in Boquete where they could get in the mood of the festival life in Panama – of course with Panama hats on. It was a New Orleans style parade starting from the Central Park to the Hotel Panamonte. Short time later, the first official concert by the Silvan Zingg Trio started. They celebrated a concert at the Garden Party at the beautiful Hotel Panamonte. The next concert of the Trio was on Friday, 22nd February in the Amphitheatre at Valle Escondido.

Each day full of music ended with a great and funny Jam Session in restaurants and bars together with all musicians. The Saturday Jam at Restaurant Bolder 54 on 23rd February was hosted by Silvan together with the great musician Deanna Bogart.

It was the first time in Panama for Nuno, Valerio and Silvan and beneath the great music from this festival, they could also enjoy Panama’s beautiful nature, plants and flowers and of course the wonderful sunny weather.

“It was such a great festival I could celebrate with my Trio and other outstanding musicians and bands such as Deanna Bogart, The Phantom Blues Band, Matt Schoffield and many many more. Four days with an ambience, audience and a feeling which is one of a kind. The festival spreads lots of joy and happiness between the musicians and to the audience. We are so happy to be part of this fantastic 13th edition 2019. Long live the BJBF!” says Silvan Zingg.

The Trio is extremely proud that they are already invited to the edition 2020! Under the name ‘Panama Pacific Riviera Music & Arts Festival’ at Buenaventura, the Boquete Jazz & Blues Festival goes to the beach from 20th – 22nd March 2020 - and the Silvan Zingg Trio will be part of it!

The next concerts: On 03rd March 2019, the Silvan Zingg Trio will play at ‘Les Classiques de Villars’ in Villars, Switzerland and a few days later, Silvan will head to off to Belgium. Middle of March he will tour for some concerts together with saxophonist Peter Verhas through Belgium. Let’s Boogie around the world!
