Global Celebrations 2018

Country/Territory Event Venue

The “Caribbean Jazz Report” concert is an orchestral sounding Jazz assemble that is based on hot Afro-Cuban rhythms (Salsa, Rumba, Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha, Conga, Latin-Funk) and performed by virtuoso soloists from the “top list” of the Russian Jazz scene.

For many years this orchestra has been performing regularly at the Jazz Philarmonic Hall – the main Jazz venue of St. Petersburg.

As a guest soloist, we also welcome Robin Blakeman, a well known British flutist, saxophonist and composer.

Russia International Jazz Day Easy Winners Ragtime Band in JFC Jazz Club

Совершенно уникальный состав. В России существует великое множество коллективов, исполняющих джаз 40-х -70-х, но почти никто не обращается в своём творчестве к истокам и корням. Easy Winners – исключение из правил. Помимо оригинальности музыкального репертуара (джаз 20-х – 30-х и его истоки), “Easy Winners” выделяется самобытностью своего музыкального инструментария: вместо привычных широкой публике барабанов – стиральная доска, вместо контрабаса – уникальный самодельный инструмент.


Absolutely unique composition. In Russia, there are a great number of bands performing jazz from the 40s to the 70s, but almost no one turns to their sources and roots in their work. Easy Winners is an exception to the rules. In addition to the originality of the musical repertoire (jazz of the 20’s and 30’s and its origins), “Easy Winners” stands out for the originality of their musical instruments: instead of the drums that are customary for the general public, a washboard, instead of a double bass, a unique homemade instrument.
