- What’s On
The tulips are blooming, the sun is shining, and the jazz is shimmying on the Nardis stage. Special festival guests visit for weekend events, and regulars like Flapper Swing, Istanbul Funk Unit and Sibel Köse Quintet return to the Nardis stage.
We’re looking forward to Yahya Dai Quintet feat. David Friedman on April 4. Dai is an unusual and eclectic front man, a cyclist/technician/musician who moved from childhood recorder lessons to the saxophone, from ethnojazz to solo computer music projects.
The Willie Jones III Quintet plays for two nights as part of the Garanti̇ Caz Yeşi̇li̇. April 5 and 6 promise to be rollicking concerts featuring this leading jazz drummer.
April 11 and 12 bring the X Jazz Festival to Nardis. The first night features one of Germany’s most important drummers, Christian Thome, joined by Kaan Bıyıkoğlu and Matt Hall. The following evening, the Olivia Trummer Trio plays their set.
Make sure to check the Nardis website for their full programme. Bookings are generally strongly recommended.
