Don't miss Lugano Estival Jazz 2012

Summer has officially arrived in Lugano today. Stroll down to the city center one of these evenings and see for yourself. The Lugano Estival Jazz is set in the heart of Lugano, in the beautiful 19th century Piazza della Riforma.

Lugano Estival Jazz attracts thousands of Jazz and World Music fans each year. In 2012 it celebrates its 34nd year of existence. Once again, Lugano will see its center being transformed into the most prestigious open-air and free musical stage in Europe.

Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, Ray Charles, Bobby McFerrin, Herbie Hancock, BB King, Tito Puente, Cesaria Evora and Barbara Hendricks are only some of the over 300 groups/artists that have performed since 1979.

Lugano Estival Jazz is promoted by local music loving citizens and funded with private and some public money. All concerts are OPEN AIR and TOTALLY FREE!

My personal favourite is definately Mory Kante on July 7th, 2012. The legendary West African singer and kora player sold a million singles with 'Yéké Yéké', which topped the European charts in 1988.

Have fun!
