Meajazz & Blues 2024! almost starting

One month left until Meajazz & Blues starts! The seventh edition of the festival offers a luxurious lineup, curated in detail and with a perfect combination of artists who follow a more traditional line and others who focus on innovation, starting from the roots of jazz and blues.

On June 28th, Azar Azar and Budda Power Blues perform. Azar Azar, Sérgio Alves’ stage name, promises to bring his entire musical journey to the stage, from Hip Hop to House, from Techno to Broken Beat. It is indeed in Jazz Funk that his compositions are anchored, but, throughout the eight songs of his debut LP, the inspiration of tutelary figures such as Roy Ayers, George Duke or Donald Byrd intersects with the presence of a kaleidoscopic variety of genres that have fueled the dance floors of Detroit, New York or London, to create autonomous, intense, stimulating and personalized music.

Accompanied by João Farinha (piano and keyboards) and Gonçalo Neto (guitar), a concert of emotions is promised, with space for songs that belong to the world, theirs and ours.
