JAZZ DELAS, COM ELLA'S E PARA ELLA'S
Considered today's most unique jazz event, the Amazonas Green Jazz Festival earns the stage at the Amazonas Theatre between 21 and 30 July 2023. "Ella's" is the name of this festival’s edition, which pays tribute to women in jazz. The festival will feature nearly 45 shows and artistic installations and boasts performances on venues like floating stages in the Rio Negro and in restaurants across the city, plus master classes, lectures, and workshops starring several participants in the event.
The Amazonas Band will host the festival. Already confirmed in the program are the Amazonas Choir, Amazonas Philharmonic, Ed Sarath (USA), Heloisa Fernandes, Camille Thurman (USA), Melissa Aldana Quartet (Chile/USA), Jonathan Kreisberg (USA), Felipe Salles Sextet Featuring Nadje Noordhuis and Natalie Cressman (USA), Anette Camargo & Projeto Tânia Maria, Global Jazz Collective (USA/ Brazil/ South Africa), Ignacio Berroa (Cuba/USA), Regina Carter (USA), Eliane Elias Quartet (BR/USA), Amilton Godoy (Brazil), Momentum (USA), Amaro Freitas Trio, and the locals (manauaras) including the Miqueias Pinheiro Quintet, Aldenor Honorato Quartet, Ismael Nascimento Trio, and Anderson Farias. It is worth highlighting the participation of the Amazonas Choir singing along with the Amazonas Band performing the unreleased works inspired by the poetry of the Amazonian Aníbal Beça and the special participation of the Amazonas Philharmonic Orchestra presenting His Day is Done – which recently premiered in South Africa – also featuring compositions of ED SARATH, one of the Orchestra’s soloists, performing along with the Amazonas Choir.
