31 August 2019 - The Jazz Bay Herceg Novi Festival, which traditionally gathers many renowned jazz artists, will be held on September 01 and 02, 2019.
Jazz Bay Herceg Novi Festival will bring eminent regional, European and international jazz musicians to Montenegro. Still, since the founding of the festival, the organisers intended to promote as many Montenegrin jazz artists as possible, especially those who have perfected their musical knowledge at prestigious music colleges.
This year's festival will begin on Sunday, September 1st, with the performance of young Montenegrin jazz artist Iva Kostić with CAUSTIC boiz from 9 pm in the Park Hall. This will mark Iva’s first concert in Herceg Novi, at which she will promote the debut album "Đorđijana".
On the second night of the festival, prominent regional and European jazz pianist and composer Zvezdan Ružić and Sextet will be introduced to the audience in Herceg Novi. After the concert, the organisers have prepared a Jam session, during which the audience will be able to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and explore jazz standards and improvisation. The jamming session will take place from 9 pm to 1 am, in the cafe Boka. All guests will have the opportunity to dance to the sounds of the renowned Montenegrin jazz guitarist Miodrag Šula Jovović and his band.
The festival organisers have put great effort so that the two days of the festival program will enchant the audience, and that thanks to the Jazz Bay Festival, Herceg Novi will be on the map of jazz events as a cultural and tourist destination.
