The Chiasso Jazz Music and Culture Festival reaches its 24th edition with a programme that confirms the event's well-established prestige: seven concerts of the highest quality will bring internationally recognised performers to the Cinema Teatro, as well as new names that are already making their way into the jazz music scene. 

The Chiasso Jazz Music and Culture Festival confirms itself as one of the best Swiss events dedicated to the Afro-American music scene. Within its articulated and original programme, both aficionados and neophytes alike can find excitement and musical moments of absolute value.

Legends of Afro-American music, wide-ranging projects, and a melting pot of different traditions and cultures characterise this cross-cultural event. Jazz is at home in Chiasso's theatre programme, and the festival's programming also fits seamlessly with that of the general music programme, offering a wide audience the opportunity to attend historic concerts such as those held in recent years.

From the groovy freshness of IKARUS to the stainless enchantment of Paolo Fresu and Omar Sosa; from the eclectic sounds of Lucia Cadotsch's AKI project to the "psychedelic Arab jazz" of Yazz Ahmed; from the artistic orbits of the Lunatics punctuated by the rhythms of Francesco D'Auria's drums to the genius of Dave Holland with the history of his jazz, passing through the electronic and techno mixtures of TUN Torino Unlimited Noise: the XXIV Chiasso Festival promises to be a colourful and atmospheric edition.

The concerts will be broadcast live on radio on RSI Rete Due. 
Once again this year, the Cinema Teatro will temporarily shed its role of pure theatre hall to become a large and elegant jazz club, recreating the ideal environment for total involvement in the musical universe.
