IN: Basilic Swing

A highlight of the new jazz scene in Marseille, Basilic Swing takes us back to the roots of jazz and the itinerant cultures of Central and Eastern Europe with its repertoire of gypsy jazz, Klezmer, and Tzigane music, all while drawing inspiration from American jazz. This quintet takes us on a journey at the crossroads of genres. It swings hard!

IN: Latin Spirit

In the spirit of the great Afro-Cuban bands of Tito Puente, Poncho Sanchez, and Orlando Maraca, Latin Spirit offers music that fuses the warmth of Latin rhythms with the richness of jazz harmonies.
