Jazz à la Villette 2011
‘Jazz is not Dead!’ proclaims the 2011 edition of the Villette’s jazz festival, which opens at the end of the month. This year’s program concentrates on Afro-American music, focusing on the intersection of jazz with funk, Afro beat, Ethiopian groove, rock and blues. Other surprises include a parallel cinema program at the MK2 Quai de Seine et de Loire curated by Archie Shepp, ‘Blacks in American Cinema’, and the last two weekends of the festival feature morning concerts for kids (6€).
