One week left to Ljubljana Jazz Festival!

The 56th edition of the Ljubljana Jazz Festival will take place between the 1st and 4th of July 2015 in the Slovenian Capital. The Festival has a long history of proposing innovative music from different countries and cultures and is organised by Cankarjev dom, a member of the Europe Jazz Network and part of its Board of Directors.

56 years make Jazz Festival Ljubljana the oldest one in Europe and the second in the world after the mythical Newport Jazz Festival in the US. Looking at the past programmes, one can recognise the importance of the Festival for the development of jazz in the old continent.

We’re having big expectations for the headliners: Fire!Orchestra (a fiery jazz ritual for all tastes and ages), Sly & Robbie meet Nils Petter Molvaer (all-star reggae rhythm section joins forces with the seminal Norwegian trumpet player), Terje Rypdal & Big Band RTV Slovenija featuring Ståle Storløkken, Diogo Nogueira & Hamilton de Holanda Bossa Negra (a delightful blend of samba, jazz and choro from Rio de Janeiro), and the one and only James Blood Ulmer who stands out as the biggest living blues legend today.

The Jazz Festival Ljubljana proudly continues the already well-established collaboration with the Clean Feed records.

As you can see, the program is fulfilling expectations of wide-open music from different places and cultures, presenting what’s fresh and updated in jazz music in its multiple ways.
