3. Valamar Jazz Festival Porec

Third Valamar Jazz Festival is traditionally held in Porec with guests: Enrico Rava, Joey Calderazo, Caecilia Norby, Hugh Masekela, Fred Wesley,  but this year the new date of 20 to 24 June . This year the festival is held under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Croatia Ivo Josipovic. Festival artistic director Tamara Obrovac and her team have prepared this year as an attractive musical program that every true lover of jazz now encouraged to enter festival dates in your calendar. Although the festival will be held earlier than in previous years, long days, pleasant nights and warm sea will continue to be a spice rich festival program.
We start on Wednesday, 20 June, with warming in the stone monument of the Native Museum of Porec. There will come a popular Croatian singer Marko Tolja that will support the Croatian musical forces to perform familiar jazz standards. Prompted by last year’s great experience, we decided this year as the venue include the magnificent Basilica Euphrasian. In its atrium will be able to enjoy, we are sure, unforgettable guitar recital by Ralph Towner (USA)
From Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June program will be held at the main location, the beautiful island of St. Nikola, Poreč waterfront across the street. On stage next to the sea, will perform with his band top jazz musicians Enrico Rava (Italy), Joey Calderazzo (USA), Caecilia Norby (Denmark, Sweden), Hugh Masekela (South Africa) and Fred Wesley (USA).
To make the whole breakfast was filled jazz atmosphere, the festival team has prepared a series of accompanying events. Street performances of young jazz musicians, jazz photography exhibition, morning gigs at local bars, midnight jam sessions and after-party programs will provide along with the main program, a unique jazz experience in beautiful Porec.
