…gerne nutze ich die Gelegenheit, für einen indischen Jazz-Freund auf das Jazz Utsav 2007 Festival in Mumbia hinzuweisen.
Jazz Utsav 2007 an International jazz Festival is being organized by a team of Jazz music lovers, in Mumbai – India over 3 days.
Formerly the same Committee under the aegis of JAZZ INDIA organized the Jazz Yatra that was the longest running Jazz festival outside the USA. Previously it was a week long festival with groups performing on two separate days.
The venue used to be the open air Rang Bhavan located in South Mumbai, but since the Government banned shows at Rang Bhavan we have been forced to have the concerts at much smaller venues.
Started in 2005 Jazz Utsav has featured some really great musicians from different countries. The core team or organizers is still the same. Jazz Utsav is organized by a Committee called Capital Jazz that is based both in Mumbai and In Delhi.
In Delhi Capital Jazz is chaired by Mr. Soli Sohrabjee and in Mumbai it is headed by Mr. Nasser Munjee.
We are seeking the participation of an American and European group if they can obtain funding to visit India.
Any help would be much appreciated.
