Jazz Prize Ruhr 2013

Jazz Prize Ruhr, 8th - 9th November 2013

Jazzwerkruhr initiated the Jazz Prize Ruhr as bi-anual event in 2011. This year the Jazz Prize Ruhr goes to the dorf. The big formation was the clear favorite of the 8 jury members and will receive the prize including a cheque over 10.000 Euros at the award winning ceremony at the domicil in Dortmund on November 8th. Various bands and artists will perform at the domicil as well as in the shops and kiosks in the surrounding. The show will be moderated by Klaus Flehe, a music insider, DJ, author and moderater of  Fiehe/Plan B on the radio chanel 1LIVE. The Jazz Prize Ruhr opens the 20. Jazztage Dortmund.

 We kindly  invite you to spend a spectacular evening in and among our village (the dorf): Let's celebrate this band!

The next day at 11 am we will discuss again at the jazz club about the 'Why', the individual in society and about the 'causa Europe' in an international think tank. The interdisciplinary melting pot project will show us in the evening, how this could look and sound like on stage. And last but not least: the 4rth bundesjazzwerkstatt  will perform at the Jazztage Dortmund on sunday, 10th of nov. and meet the musicians collective Snarky Puppy from Brooklyn. This 4rth national lab bringing together musicians from divers german cities focuses on electronic music as the BumpingJazzWires and meets US musicians collective Snarky Puppy.
