MOSCOW, June 14. /ITAR-TASS/. The International Usadba jazz festival, one of the most awaited events in the music calendar, is kicking off at the Arkhangelskoye estate near Moscow on Saturday. During the next two day, the Russian public will be able to listen to the best jazz musicians from New Orleans, the United States, which is considered to be the cradle of modern jazz.
New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival has been held since 1970. This year, the festival has relocated to Arkhangelskoye for two days.
“Holding the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival as part of the Usadba jazz festival will certainly be this year’s highlight. We have been working on this project for a year. We have managed to bring a huge number of musicians from the jazz cradle land - eight jazz orchestras,” Maria Syomushkina, the president of the Usadba jazz festival, said.
Itar-Tass is one of the information sponsors of the XI International Festival Usadba Jazz.
