Jazz will be heard once again at the open-air Amphiteatre of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, between 31 July and 9 August. Two weekends filled with concerts dedicated to jazz, improvised and exploratory music. In light of the current pandemic, the 37th international edition of Jazz em Agosto will not take place this year, having been replaced by Jazz 2020.
Through this event, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation aims to support the comeback of Portuguese jazz musicians and reunite them with their audience. For this purpose, the Foundation established a partnership with Associação Porta-Jazz, in Oporto, and Jazz ao Centro, in Coimbra – two entities that have both been pioneers in fostering jazz in Portugal – to jointly help bring about this event.
Jazz 2020 will feature 10 performances – six in Lisbon, at the open-air Amphitheatre of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, two in Oporto and two in Coimbra. The programme will include some of today’s most relevant national projects, selected among the recordings and live performances that shaped the Portuguese Jazz scene in the past year.
In a time when many artists have seen their projects cancelled or postponed, this edition is also an opportunity to support more than 60 musicians and the technical teams involved in these concerts.
