54th Kraków Jazz All Souls’ Day Festival

05Nov09

Krakow’s All Souls Jazz Festival is the oldest jazz festival in Europe, founded in 1954 as part of an underground jam session while jazz, being music of freedom was forbidden to perform publicly in Poland. For musicians, representing intellectual’s class, playing jazz was an escape from grey and sad then Poland under Communism regime. All of them knew each other but the only day they could get off work was All Souls Day – that’s how it started. The festival attracted both Polish and foreign jazzmen as well as jazz fans every year in early November for over half century. The music has been changing in keeping with current trends, also venues and performers, but some features remain constant.

This year’s festival takes place from 30 October to 9 November
