TanJazz is back!

The 19th edition of Tanjazz will take place from 19th to 22nd in Tangier with around 110 artists and musicians of various musical tendencies, but whose common dominator is jazz

The organisers of this musical event said during a press conference on Thursday night in Casablanca, that the 7 special "scenes" are planned for this occasion and will include many groups of from various "jazzy horizons".

"Some perpetuate the memory of the Old Square of New Orleans. Some keep alive the great standards by interpreting them in their own way. Some pay tribute in their style to the missing. Some revisit the hard bop with a new vitality. Some Klezmerise, orientalize or latinize. Others explore the paths of Nu-Jazz and electro jazz. Others finally in surprising solos or duets invent another jazz - their own.

"It's the Jazz in all its forms", say the organisers of this festival which will celebrate its 20 years next year.

Among the novelties, Tanjazz launches this year its "Day Off". Aficionados of music will appreciate a day or early evening program that will allow them to stroll through the streets of Tangier, to see the various facets, while discovering the artists who embody the new contemporary jazz scene.
