Jazz at Intercultural Borders – Local Dialects vs The Mainstream

Jazz musicians from all over the world will come together to discuss the universality of jazz, and how jazz musicians can take inspiration from their country’s traditional music to create works of jazz that quote their own culture while still maintaining said universality. Joining us for this talk will be Jari Perkiömäki (saxophonist, Finland), Kaan Bıyıkoğlu (pianist, Turkey), and Michael Schiefel (singer, Germany), and the talk will be moderated by Önder Focan (guitarist, Turkey).
