The Paros Jazz Academy comes to the Paros Park 

For the second consecutive year The Paros Jazz Academy comes to the Paros Park and the outdoor Archilochos amphitheater on Tuesday July 10, 2012 at 21:30 with the Jasser Haj Youssef Quartet for an evening of oriental jazz.

The evening holds great promise as the virtuoso of the viola d’amore, Jasser Haj Youssef weaves a melodic tapestry of Eastern and Oriental Jazz sounds under a Parian summer night sky. His perfect mastery of classical Arabic and traditional repertoire and his knowledge in musicology makes him one of the most promising exponents of the new generation of Arab musicians. Joining him are renowned musicians Gaël Cadoux on the piano, Arnaud Dolmen drums and Gwo Ka and Marc Buronfosse on the acoustic bass.

“Four musicians in the crowd, under a patch of blue sky”. The Jasser Haj Youssef Quartet considers itself a symbol of openness to all music. Chants of the Orient, vibrations of the soul, body trance…Mixed music that carries baroque accents to floral covered shores of jazz. 

 

The Paros Jazz Academy began in 2011 by Athena Perantinou and Marc Buronfosse in an effort to create a cultural and musical magnet for talented musicians to learn, perfect and play their music in a magical setting such as the island of Paros and consists of a team of experienced teachers and artists, all with international backgrounds, that will be sharing their knowledge and passion for music with students from around the world.  For more information on the Paros Jazz Academy please visit their site here.
The Environmental and Cultural Park of Paros is located in the beautiful peninsula of Ai Yiannis Detis in the bay of Naousa, Paros and represents a modern example for the development of benign forms of successful tourism practices combining numerous recreational, athletic, cultural and environmental activities which take place throughout the year.

The Festival at the Paros Park, from June till October, promotes artists from around the world and local initiatives, encourages cultural and ecological awareness and advocates collective and volunteer participation.

See you at the Park
