The Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic has left its mark on the holding of international cultural events in our country. And of course BAKU JAZZ FEST was no exemption. Due to the quarantine and the closure of borders between countries, in 2020, the festival management decided to hold it online.

The world jazz crowd took this step with enthusiasm. Such musical celebrities as the German team Werner Kuspert&Colleagues, the trio Gaspara Karoli from Hungary, saxophonist Candy Dalfer from the Netherlands and many  other jazz stars have expressed their readiness to take part in Baku Jazz Fest 2020.

But after each burden comes relief – the borders are opened, communication between the peoples was restored.

The festival was held at different venues — Landmark Business Center, International Mugham Center, Azerbaijan State Academic Musical Theater, Chamber and Organ Music Hall Azerbaijan State Academic Philharmonic named after Muslim Magomaeva. This year, BEER HALL received the right to hold concerts & MUSIC CLUB.

The most ambitious was Baku Jazz Festival-2019, the opening took place with stunning installations on the Maiden Tower in a combination of interesting musical design in different directions and styles.

A three-hour stunning concert of Azerbaijani and foreign musicians in the ancient part of Baku — Icheri Sheher ended with a real surprise-3D mapping, an art installation in the style of jazz on the Maiden Tower. The bright opening attracted great attention of residents of the capital and guests of the city.

Baku is a jazz city. The harmony of being in the rhythm of our life, as well as in the rhythm of

jazz, can be comprehended only in constant improvisation. And those who have accepted the

legacy of the greats: Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Vagif Mustafa-zadeh cope with this task better than others. The team of the Azerbaijan Travel International wishes you a pleasant musical experience.
