Doha, November 02 (QNA)
The third edition of Katara European Jazz Festival started on Wednesday amidst significant presence of heads of diplomatic missions of participant countries and a large crowd.
Following the inauguration ceremony, Jazz lovers experienced the spectacular Saharan music that blend with rock sounds, African pulse, rhythmic trances and groove during the performance of the French band, Ezza.
Standing out of previous famous bands, the power trio EZZA transforms and brings the music off the usual path, blending, without any concessions, modern rock sounds, African pulse, rhythmic trances and relentless groove. EZZA’s desert bluesrock, three-piece dynamic and soul-stirring melodies, produce a more contemporary sound than previously associated with Saharan music.
The first day of Jazz festivities continued with the performance of Golden Circle Quartet from Italy who formed an imaginary “golden circle,” blending together their experiences and setting aside their preeminent roles to convey their extraordinary talent as interpreters and music makers in a singular band.
Jazz festivities will continue on Friday with the performance by the German band Three Fall.
