Jazz By The Sea Festival 2017 Presents:
THE WORLD JAZZ JAMBOREE AT LIGHTHOUSE POOLE
To round off a week of Jazz in a multitude of venues across Bournemouth and Poole, Jazz by the Sea Festival presents the World Jazz Jamboree at Lighthouse Poole on Saturday 17th June, showcasing jazz music from around the world.
Opening the day’s series of concerts is the Italian saxophonist, Tommaso Starace and his Quartet, who explore a melodic and cinematic approach to jazz music, against a backdrop of images from one of Italy’s most celebrated photographers, Gianni Berengo Gardin.
The World Jazz Jamboree will also include Monica Vasconcelos, who introduces the wonderful lyrical compositions of the Brazilian Bossa Nova with her authentic South American band. Dan Somogyi returns mid-afternoon with his Thokozile Collective – a highly talented South African jazz sextet featuring the reverberating rhythms and beats of the African continent.
In the early evening, acclaimed Cuban Violinist Omar Puente and his Sextet play their unique style of music, drawing on the elements of classical and traditional Cuban music to form the basis of an exciting new approach to Jazz.
Bringing the World Jazz Jamboree and Jazz by the Sea Festival 2017 to a close, Soothsayers, a hugely popular Afro Caribbean 7 piece band perform original Afrobeat and reggae-influenced jazz grooves that are guaranteed to get the audience in party mode for the festival finale.
