Festival de Jazz de Malta

Malta Jazz Festival (Grand Harbour, Valletta) — the Malta Jazz Festival has helped raise the profile of jazz locally from a fringe festival to one of the most-awaited musical events in Malta’s artistic and cultural calendar. Running every July in the open-air setting of Ta’ Liesse – where the Grand Harbour bastions meet the sea – contemporary music comes together with a sense of history, setting the backdrop for high-calibre performances which delight jazz aficionados and lay persons alike. Previous international musicians that have performed here include Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Betty Carter, Joshua Redman, Joao Bosco, and Avishai Cohen Jazz fans are advised to check the event’s website for the next event: www.maltajazzfestival.org
