Call for suggestions: Djangofolllies 2014 (Belgium)

In Festivals, Job opportunity on January 25, 2013 at 9:10 am

Dear Friends,

Many perceive Django Reinhardt as one of the greatest personalities of European Jazz. This gypsy guitar player deeply impressed and inspired the jazz scene with his improvisations on the guitar.

In 1994, Belgian musician Koen De Cauter, asked Brosella why nobody in Brussels did anything with Django’s music. So Brosella initiated this event, the Djangofolllies, in memory of Django Reinhardt. To honour this exceptional musician, a series of concerts in the ‘Django tradition’ are programmed in different venues.

The program of Djangofolllies is not limited to the traditional ‘Django style’ but also includes music which shines a new light on the genre and goes beyond the barriers of the ‘hot club’ music. At the festival we had musicians performing modern jazz, flamenco and also songs on the poems of Garcia Lorca were proposed.

Please submit your suggestion for the DJANGOFOLLLIES 2014 (20th edition).

Goog luck to all of you !

Dear friends,

Let’s have a look out of Belgium :-). I have discovered a blog which presents a looooong list of the jazz clubs in Massachusetts, in America. You will also find the jazz venues, festivals and an event calendar.

MassJazz is a concerted, statewide effort initiated in 2009 to promote a full range of live jazz performances, community events, educational courses and related cultural activities to the convention and visitors industry.  Working with the state’s travel and tourism agencies, MassJazz is developing a singular program that brands Massachusetts as a jazz destination for domestic and international visitors.  Its goal is to develop visitor packages with hotels, restaurants, performing arts venues and travel services to create an alluring new tourism campaign that stimulates the local economy.

I’m sure that you know where to program your next holidays 🙂 !
