For 15 years, BNP Paribas Foundation has been one of the few patrons of a vibrant, exciting and often improvised genre of music: jazz. In addition to its support of many talented jazz musicians, the Foundation has partnered with some major events such as the Paris Jazz Festival in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, with the 10th edition running from May 16 to May 30.
For ten years, the lovers of the Blue Note have moseyed their way to this musical event that captivates the capital. The multiple stages for young talent, soul female artists allow the audience to discover all styles of jazz.
This new edition will allow the public to listen to artists supported by the Foundation, including Jean-Pierre Como and Murat Öztürk.
United by the same desire to promote the opening of jazz to a wider audience and increase exchanges between jazz artists from different cultures, the BNP Paribas Foundation and the Jazz Festival in Saint-Germain-des-Prés have been partners since 2009.
