Jazz, after all, is a peculiar genre: drawing life from the heritage of its past great masters, of course, but at the same time constantly reinventing itself and, in this day and age, offering a veritable manifesto about the meaning of the word “change”. Jazz, like a sponge, absorbs everything around it: history, landscapes, the evolution of humanity and social needs. Within this constant change it must make no excuses, but always look towards the future.
The die has been cast, and the program for JAZZMI 2021 has been unveiled.
From September 21st to the 30th, seven young Italian jazz bands, selected from over 400 young musicians, will compete in JAM THE FUTURE. The winning group will be granted a chance to present their own compositions on one of the stages of JAZZMI 2021.
Our long wait is finally over: JAZZMI is beginning to reveal its first dates and prestigious performers, and it does so by staying true to its roots, with the firm belief in the healing power of music and its ability to help us face these challenging times.
