For three days we are inviting you on a (jazz-) musical journey again, that this year will take us from Scandinavia through Europe to Africa. Again the Festival is showing how the wide range of musical traditions and the history of migration is reflected in jazz.
All the musicians featuring at the festival have something in common: their open-mindedness and interest to cross borders in various senses. There might often be existential, serious reasons to emigrate, but musicians are often wanderers between diverse worlds through curiosity. The clash of cultures and musical genres leads them to new horizons. Those new experiences and encounters are reflected in their music. Jazz seems for them all more than just a musical genre – more as a universal language.
Welcome to a European Jazz Odyssey!
We are looking forward to seeing you!
