Autumn in Granada has many nuances. The first snows on Sierra Nevada, the beautiful views of an autumnal city from every viewpoint and jazz music throughout Granada. Every year around this time our beautiful city welcomes the Granada International Jazz Festival, one of the oldest festivals of this genre in Europe and the only Spanish festival member of the Europe Jazz Network.
Starting from tomorrow and for 9 days we will have the opportunity to enjoy a Granada moving to the beat of jazz. Artists like Branford Marsalis, Tom Harrell and Chano & Josele will lead the line-up of this annual festival which this year celebrates 35 years. Years that have seen jazz icons such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Bebo Valdes, Chucho Valdes, Cassandra Wilson, Art Blakey, Charlie Haden, Tete Montoliu, Diana Krall, Elvis Costello or Chick Korea among others. It has been the excellence of all the musicians who have participated in the festival since its beginning -and the great commitment of the city of Granada with this one- what have made this festival one of the most famous international jazz festivals worldwide.
Whether you love jazz or if you just want to spend an unforgettable evening in our city, do not miss the events programmed for this festival among which are also concerts, exhibitions, film screenings and jazz performers competitions.
