Jazz Concert Duo Fuss / Leichtfried will be held in cooperation with the Austrian Embassy in the Niksic Theater on Monday, September 2nd, Dominic Fuss - trumpet and Jörg Leichtfried - piano.
With the music they create, they together explore the boundaries between jazz, classical and modern music. During this process, they find their original sound consisting of an original repertoire, complete with jazz standards.
Their musical connection is based on Fuss's strong sense of melody and Leichtfried's rich harmonic accompaniment, which both complement and build into a symbiosis.
Also, during the festival, visitors had the opportunity to meet two Turkish artists who, in cooperation with the Yunus Emre Institute - Turkish Cultural Center Podgorica, came to Niksic to complete the program of this year's festival with their art and skills.
Veysel Celikdemir sand painting technique, and Nihat Tellioglu glass objects and sculptures showed to the interested audience these extraordinary forms of art.
Visitors to this year's SMF could learn a lot about other cultures and forms of entertainment through music, fire show, dance, performances and circus acrobatics.
This year's festival, the fourth in a row, lasted only one day, due to financial reasons.
The Ministry of Culture provided support to the organization of one of the most significant street art festivals in Montenegro.
