My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.
4. Valamar JaZZ FesTivaL will be held in Porec, Croatia.
The beauty of the festival is in connection of big jazz names and the stages who are situated in the authentic historical and natural setting.
The concert will be performed on the Island of Sveti Nikola and in cultural and historical monument, in the Euphrasian Basilica. After party and jam session will be heard from the city streets from the Villa Polesini.
Some of big names as Eddie Palmieri, Buster Williams, Trilok Gurtu, Billy Childs are guests of the 4.Valamar Jazz Festival and this is a really good reason to join the festival.
