The 3rd Delhi International Jazz Festival, organised by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) features 14 bands from 11 countries. The festival will be held at Nehru Park, New Delhi from 15-18 March and is the largest ever jazz festival, with performances across four days.
Conceived by the ICCR in 2011 as a "tool of cultural contact" spanning Asia, Africa, North America and Europe, the festival weaves together the message of music and culture. The festival is held within the lush green environs of Nehru Park with mesmerising music playing under the stars, to delighted audiences. As part of the inclusive nature of the festival, entry is free.
Commenting on the festival, Director General, ICCR, Dr. Suresh K Goel said, “The International Jazz Festival has now been firmly established as an iconic event in Delhi’s cultural calendar. The 3rd Festival at Nehru Park from 15 -18 March would have well-known names such as New Bone Quintet Band from Poland, Sindi & Mimi from South Africa, Ararat from Israel, Sachal Vasandani from the USA, Imany from France and Malcom Braff Trio from Switzerland."
