4th Delhi International Jazz Festival all set to rock the Capital

The Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) is all set to organise the much awaited Delhi International Jazz Festival, the largest ever jazz festival in the country for the 4th consecutive year from March 28th to 30th. The festival will be organised at Nehru Park, Chanakya Puri, New Delhi in which prominent bands and Jazz Artists around the world will enthral the audiences.

After three fantastic seasons of unparalleled success in Delhi, the panel has decided to take advantage of new opportunities by adding new Bands around the world. This year, you will still see your favourite elements of Jazz world: Ari Roland Quartet (USA), Smarton Trio (Hungry), Black Slade (Delhi), Tres Butacas (Colombia), Obara Quartet (Poland), Mina Agossi Trio (France), Joe Alvarez / Trident Jazz Trio (Mumbai), PJ Perry (Canada), Modern Han (Korea), Ximo Tebar and IVAM Jazz Ensemble (Spain) and Drift (Indian group).

Conceived by the ICCR in 2011 as a "tool of cultural contact" spanning Asia, Africa, North America and Europe, the festival weaves together the message of music and culture. The festival will be held in the luxuriant green vicinity of Nehru Park with enthrall music playing under the stars, to euphoric audiences and the best part: entry is free to public.
