Since its origins from the late 19th century in New Orleans, jazz music today has gone global with new trends emerging every day. Every year the 'Jazz India Circuit International Festival Goa' brings in some old world as well as newer forms of experimental jazz music to Goa. Open-air venues, a great line up of artists, food, drinks all combine to make for an envy-inducing experience for jazz lovers. From world-renowned artists to some local jazz talent, they do manage to continuously push boundaries and thrill every jazz aficionado. Kicking off on December 1, 2018, we recommend that you definitely start making those vacation plans to Goa.
This year they're taking it a notch higher and have the two time Grammy award nominee Hiatus Kaiyote , an Australian soul quartet performer for the 1st time ever in India. If you thought that was not enough, they have Goa's own Lester Godinho, a drumming legend, performing too with his band Still Waters. There are other awesome acts like Jerome Klein from Luxembourg, one of Europe's most exciting jazz groups - OZMA, the French Afrofunk ensemble - Supergombo, leading specialists of British 'punk-jazz' - WorldService Project and India's guitar prodigy - Rhythm Shaw & his band Orjazzmic.
