Experience the joys of jazz in the botanical gardens with the international Paris Jazz Festival. The program explores the crossovers and musical forms of Jazz, through Sunday picnic concerts, photographic exhibition ‘Giants of Jazz’, musical games and other games from around the world, workshops and discussions about music and nature until 31st July. Concerts are free after paying admission for the park.
Aiming to entertain jazz fans as much as flaneurs strolling in the park, the festival seeks to find a natural balance between the colors of jazz and the vivid environment of the Botanic Gardens, and highlight the links between Paris and the rest of the jazz planet. Look out for Ping Machine on the 2nd July, followed by the Stéphane Guillaume Brass Project.
The Kaloumba Company bring a fun world of musical games to create your own personal journeys on Saturdays and Sundays, and in the heart of the park, the exhibition “Musical Wood” explores wood for musical instruments. Wander into the “Clearing of Improvisations” behind Pavilion 12 for lyrical experiments, harmonic experiences and melodic discoveries.
Musical acrobats and melody jugglers will pitch their tent in the heart of Parc Floral to celebrate the colourful world of traveling carnivals and circuses, inspired by the wanderlust of Jazz. The opening tribute to the piano reflects the grandeur of jazz, while funk and soul music make a welcome stop at Parc Floral.
