L’Emoi du Jazz is a jazz festival that has been held since 2009. This year’s celebration was a special edition in memory of founder and jazz musician Dez Gad, who passed away on April 30th. The festival lasted three weeks.
"Jazz is a beautiful, democratic music. It encourages musicians with very strong, and many times, very different points of view to work together as a team while, at the same time, giving them the space to express their individuality. It's a very important art form and can be used as a model for different cultures to work together." - Marcus Miller, UNESCO Artist for Peace
