66th Kraków All Souls “Zaduszki” Jazz Festival
Wednesday, October 27, 2021 - Saturday, October 30, 2021
Europe’s longest-running jazz festival is changing its formula. “We want Kraków to remain an important element in the history of jazz while providing a space for development for young artists,” promises Ireneusz Raś, director of the current committee organising the Kraków All Souls “Zaduszki” Jazz Festival. Events held as part of this year’s 66th event, under the banner “Jazz for All”, are presented on the stages of the Małopolska Garden of Arts, the Nowa Huta Cultural Centre and the Juliusz Słowacki Theatre. Creators of the documentary Melomani Forever introduce the history of jazz in Poland, while the Jazz Band Ball Orchestra, Boba Jazz Band and Old Metropolitan Band present the Traditional Jazz Garden: Back to the Roots. Over the following days, Marek Stryszowski and his guests present the programme A Laboratory After Your Fiftieth, Marcin Masecki and Capella Cracoviensis examine the Star of All Souls, and the Story of Polish Jazz – Second Edition showcases Poland’s finest jazz musicians including Jan “Ptaszyn” Wróblewski, Krzesimir Dębski, Henryk Miśkiewicz and Aga Zaryan paying homage to Jarosław Śmietana. The evening will also feature the presentation of the Gold Stars of Helicon. The concert programme will be accompanied by traditional jam sessions at Kraków’s jazz clubs.
