This 9th edition will focus on musicians and their identity as musicians from Marseilles, which means multiple and diverse. « We are all convinced that the forms of jazz music must be developed in order to be consistent with the artistic, cultural and social situation... » «...This is why our will to use our artistic efforts as a springboard to express our human, social and political claims is very natural ». This claim of identity is partly expressed by a return to the roots of Black music, through blues, the preeminence of percussion, the introduction of free jazz and the use of instruments in an "African" manner.
« Music is the Healing Force of the Universe »
