From 6-14th July, the city of Tabarka will house the new edition of The Jazz A Session which is to succeed in attracting the huge crowd by focusing on artists of great calibre. It will be a genuine hodgepodge of musical flavours all beautifully seasoned with timeless and polymorphic jazz.

 

World Music: 14-20 August

From the 4th-20th of August, Tabarka Jazz Festival will budge over for the World, Latino & Rai Music Festival. World Music is for music what biodiversity for the environment: a prerequisite for survival and growth. The Tabarka World, Latino & Rai Music Festival is a world tour of music, and, as we all know, an exposure to musical cultures from here and elsewhere is a source of continual enrichment for all, and a means to preserve and develop cultural heritage as a source of inexhaustible wealth to us.

The Latino section of the festival is more dance focussed, with three excellent evenings of music for which it is impossible to stand against the wall! The final, Rai, section of the festival will put the spotlight on North Africa, with a myriad of prestigious and talented musicians from the plains and mountains of the Rai area of neighbouring Algeria, and draws many loyal fans from all around to the performances every year.

Enjoy the breeze from the basilica, listen to the music and watch the dazzling sky, or keep up with the red hot pace of these exceptional bands and dance the night away.
