Jazzfest Berlin 2021: Scenes of Now

Sat, 2021/11/06
Betonhalle
19:30

Singer and guitarist Sibusile Xaba is one of the most idiosyncratic figures in South Africa’s rich music scene. His live-streamed performance is juxtaposed with a video work by São Paulo quartet Quatarbê, who blithely eschew musical boundaries, and a concert by Mariá Portugal debuting at Jazzfest Berlin with a stellar cast of German improvisers.

Jazzfest Berlin 2021

After a digital New York-Berlin edition in the first year of the pandemic, Jazzfest Berlin 2021 traces the paths of improvised music to three more cultural hubs: Cairo, São Paulo and Johannesburg. Together with local partners, the festival team has developed a diverse programme of partly pre-produced, partly live concert formats that showcase the musicality, innovative power and affinity with interdisciplinary experimentation of the respective creative music scenes as well as the specific places they occupy in between a global jazz canon and their own region’s rich musical heritage.
