On September 27 and 28 we bring Tasty Fruits with Gemma Abrié and the whole Dream at Rabat, at the Au Chellah Festival www.facebook.com/JazzauChellah
I hope it serves to revive The Fruits!
The Chellah jazz festival is now one of the most important festivals dedicated to European jazz in the world. The European Union in Morocco, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Communication – Department of Culture, announced that it will take place from Thursday 28 September to Sunday, October 1, 2017, through the historic site of Chellah in Rabat.
With more than 220 concerts programmed since its creation in Rabat, few events have put, with the most constant determination, an exhaustive and constantly updated gaze on the vitality of jazz in European Union countries. The magic of the concerts of the jazz festival in Chellah Morocco has a job – a copy of the music of the EU, a hearing of more and more young people and listeners, and shared values and mutual respect for each musician at the festival.
Since 1996, European jazz musicians travel to Rabat to meet Moroccan musicians of all origins and Moroccan music and, therefore, offer unique moments, as a result of creation workshops between Europeans and Moroccans. These unique concerts are not limited to the festival, but sometimes they give rise to musical projects and new musical collaborations among artists.
Several mergers meetings prepared and presented at the festival were able to export outside of Morocco, and have contributed to few known Moroccan soloists until then to develop their capacity for improvisation, exchange and dialogue with European artists.
From September 28 to October 1, 2017, Jazz au Chellah, which has become almost a label, will celebrate 22 years of success and beautiful musical encounters.
Since its creation in 1996, Jazz à Chellah has become an indispensable factor in the cultural scene of Morocco. The festival is an initiative of the European Union in Morocco and the Ministry of Culture in collaboration with the Wilaya of Rabat-Salé and in collaboration with the embassies and cultural institutes of the Member States of the European Union.
