The 8th International Festival "Jazz Bishkek Spring" to be held in Bishkek on April 19-21

 Bishkek, April 12 / Kabar /. The non-governmental foundation "Central Asia-Art Management" (CAAM) announces of the 8th International Festival "Jazz Bishkek Spring" to be held in Bishkek on 19th, 20th and 21st of April 2013 at the Maldybaev Kyrgyz National Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet.

A unique atmosphere of the festival in 2013 will be created by 13 jazz groups from 9 countries of Central Asia, Europe and the United States.
International Festival "Jazz-Bishkek-Spring" has traditionally been an annual event that gathers creative people, by developing jazz and enriching the cultural environment in Central Asia.

Experiments of fusion of traditional instruments and jazz from the first days of our festival became its distinctive feature. They have led to the beginning of a large project on development of ethnic jazz in Central Asia.

CAAM for several years has been implementing a project "Ethnic Jazz in Central Asia." As part of this project we conduct workshops, produce CDs and booklets reflecting on theoretical aspects and prospects of ethnic jazz evolution. The results of the creative experiments will be presented at the festival.
For the 8th Festival CAAM moved away from the traditional thematic tasks by suggesting the music bands prepare a composition that best reflects the musical traditions of this nation.

Workshop on the "Ethnic jazz in Central Asia" project will be held on 20th of April with the participation of Central Asian musicians, composers, jazz critics and music experts.

The traditional "Debut of the festival" annually presenting new names of young jazz musicians of Kyrgyzstan to Bishkek audience, will introduce to the public a new band "Brass Quintet".

Jam Session of “Jazz Bishkek Spring-2013” will take place on 21st of April in the "Golden Dragon" Artclub at 10 PM.
