II. International Pula Jazz Festival, Pula
II International Pula Jazz Festival, 2017.
|For the second year in a row, the Association Cultural Initiative, led by the world-famous saxophone player Oleg Kireyev, organized the International Pula Jazz Festival.|
After the last year's first festival featured by internationally renowned musicians from the jazz and ethno-music worlds, the second edition brought a more diverse set of artists who intake annotations of folk expression in their jazz. Thus, in the repertoire of this year's event they found melodies from China, Israel, Russia, Canada, the United States of America, Serbia, Croatia, as well as many other countries from four different continents.
In the shade of centuries-old pines that adorn the city garden of the Croatian Defenders' House, a combination of seemingly incompatible instruments enriched with the most beautiful vocals, all the guests enjoyed the evening filled with quality performances that met the most demanding ear, but also the emotion that surrounds the spirit and body.
For three days in a row, the center of Pula was a real experience, where the specific sounds of guitars, pianos, saxophone, trumpets and other instruments in the compositions of jazz, fusion, Latin music and many other specific and recognizable styles were intertwined.
Each of the three dates featured different musicians, and the highlight of the festival was the last night in which all the participants performed.
