Baku Jazz Festival 2017 opens in Baku
Beauty of jazz is that it reproduces those sounds in ways that speak directly to the heart of the listener as no other music does.
Jazz is certainly an art of the moment, which drew on different national, regional, and musical cultures and gave rise to many distinctive styles.
Azerbaijani jazz covers a broad range of styles and often features a blend with traditional Azerbaijani music. Founded by such national giants as Gara Garayev, Tofig Guliyev, Rauf Hajiyev and Niyazi Vagif, it is still beloved by music lovers around the world.
The Land Of Fire is noted for the numerous jazz festivals that take place all year round. One of Azerbaijan’s most exciting jazz festivals came back to the City of Winds with new venues and a feast of talent.
Baku Jazz Festival 2017 solemnly opened in Elektra Events Hall on October 20.
The festival, organized with the support of the Culture and Tourism Ministry and Azerbaijani Culture Foundation, features rich musical program performed by well-known Azerbaijani and foreign jazzmen. The Jazz Festival is one of the most anticipated musical events of the year.
