October 21-23, 8 p.m.
All Music is Jazz
Closer art center (31, vul. Nyznioyurkivska, Kyiv)
Contemporary jazz musicians from Ukraine, France, Germany and America will play in the All Music is Jazz festival to present jazz in a new format. Olha Bekenstein, the person behind the idea and the organizer of the festival, says that the goal is to show the urbanist rather than the romantic side of jazz. Therefore, apart from the purely musical aspect, the festival will include an educational component. It will feature Q&A sessions with the artists, workshops for young musicians and a film screening as a collab with American Independence Film Festival.
