During the 13th “Jazz Festival” the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy new works from the city's music bands and live unique creative days enjoying ethnic jazz, 90's sounds in combination with electronic and funky sounds, a jazz quintet by fresh presences and a drummer, the renewed “Baby Trio” of Yorgos Kontrafouris, the new work of Alekos Papadopoulos entitled “Kroustomania” and a surprise night with blues-soul-r'n'b with the signature of Grigoris Simadopoulos

In these 4 days of the festival, the audience and apprentice musicians will have the opportunity to learn, enjoy new band works and live special creative musical days ranging from:

* seminar clinic about handling improvisation

* '90s sounds in a combination of electronic and funky sounds

We invite you to participate with your presence in the “13th Jazz Celebration” and become an open party having a musical pic-nic on something pleasing and constructing.
