Marseille Jazz des Cinq Continents

Marseille Jazz des Cinq Continents : From July 17 to 27, 2019

Founded by Roger Luccioni and Bernard Souroque in 2000, Marseille Jazz des Cinq Continents aims to promote both world and Jazz musics. It is now became an important event not only in Marseille but all over Provence: 70,000 people flock to see 27 concerts on 16 stages. The festival will start with free opening concerts in Marseille: Mino Cinelu & Nils Petter Molvae and "Home": Papanosh with Roy Nathanson & Napoleon Maddox.

For the 20th edition, established and emerging artists are featured in the line-up: Thomas Dutronc, Delgres, Chilly Gonzales and Melody Gardot among others. A first part of the evening is always dedicated to local artists and the second offers top international groups. Celebrities like Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins or Archie Shepp headlined the festival. 

To further expand its impact Marseille Jazz des Cinq Continents has established a solid partnership with Jazz Croisé Association. The latter aims to promote coproductions and tours for emerging artists, invite foreign musical presenters and foster international exchanges.
