The 2015 edition of the Nattjazz Festival in Bergen, Norway, will take place between the 28th of May and 1st of June. Nattjazz, a member of Europe Jazz Network (EJN), is the oldest and one of the leading jazz festivals in Northern Europe. 35 years old, it presents 10 days of music in a spectacular venue, an old sardine factory, with over 30 concerts of prominent international artists as well as avant-garde and soon-to-be famous projects.
On the 21st April 2015 a great evening of jazz and improvised music will take place at Cankarjev dom, the biggest culture center and event hall in Slovenia, and a member of Europe Jazz Network (EJN). The evening will see the performances of the Sidony Box trio and of Shanir Blumenkranz's Abraxas, that will perform the new album Psychomagia, from the Masada Book Two of John Zorn.
Despite the existing potential, there are only a few local musicians and bands that manage to make the leap on international ground. Getting the top spot requires that special something, something unique that can inspire and attract music fans across the globe. One of the bands with all the necessary requirements to claim the glory is the Lower Austrian vocal combo Bauchklang.
