About events


On September 25 and 26, 2021, the ODESSA JAZZ FEST will take place in the Summer Theater "GORSAD" in Odessa! This international musical event with a twenty-year history traditionally brings together the best musicians from around the world in the city. Do not miss the incredible opportunity to see virtuosos from Turkey, America, Europe, Ukraine on one stage and feel the unique vibe of music that can unite all continents.

The incredible concerts will take place over two days, and each time the program will exceed all expectations. Start over. The musicians from the Lahza Project are both of Turkish descent. Chenko Erdogan plays the fretless guitar, and Ikiza, who grew up and lived all his life in Sweden, plays drums and percussion. In their work, the artists skillfully combine bold jazz improvisation and folk music of their historical homeland.

Another star of the evening is the top Ukrainian jazz saxophonist Bogdan Gumenyuk, who has his own music label and experience of joint performances with the world's leading jazz performers.

The participants of the Zira project will perform on our stage with the leading jazz pianist of Ukraine - Alexey Petukhov, who is well known all over the world thanks to his collaboration with the best artists, including the Grammy winner Gregory Porter.

Heidi Rae - combines classical jazz and bossa nova in his performance, betraying unique shades of jazz standards and current tracks.

The duet of Roxana Smirnova (piano) and Mikhail Kalinin (guitar) is able to create melodies in which you can hear both improvisation and classical rhythms. This music, as it were, envelops the listeners and awakens their imagination.
