14ème MARNI JAZZ FESTIVAL
07 > 16 septembre 2017
During this 14th edition of the festival, where drummers will take centre stage, one of every two concerts will be a first ! You will be able to discover for yourselves (The Mystery of) KEM, the brand new project of globetrotting Stéphane Galland and Carnatic flautist Ravi Kulur from India. A new group, a new electro-jazz odyssey for Antoine Pierre, a young Belgian drummer making waves on the European scene, and Hungarian jazz singer Veronika Harcsa. Rêve d’Éléphant Orchestra Percussion will be a live premiere for this group from Liège, who don’t do things quite like anybody else, with their 3 drummers, after an opening with Trio Grande. The ever-present linchpin of the Belgian and international scene, Bruno Castellucci, will play in a quintet alongside the saxophonist Joe Higham. Funk, groove and power with Manu Katché from France, alongside Ivan Paduart and Quentin Dujardin ; and a magical closing night with virtuoso Ivorian drummer Paco Séry. The festival exhibition theme this year will be Jazz, as always, with the illustrations of Serge Dehaes.
