We have not swayed from our desire and permanent wish, the wish to make you happy during each of our editions. 2022 will have been, in its preparation, an accumulation of very nice steps :
Hosting Ron CARTER for the 3rd time, for his 85th birthday, his previous whirlwind concerts at the Opera.
Stimulating and gratifying discoveries that prove how fruitful and sensitive the French and international musical scene can be, Ariel BART, Madelaine CAZENAVE with ROUGE, Mario FORTE, NATURAL WOMAN BAND and her tribute to Aretha FRANKLIN’s perfection.
A real creation, all along 2022, with and around MANGANE, an amazing artist living in our region who will unveil his “ZOOM ZEMMATT” under the musical direction of Alune WADE.
The generation that affirms and confirms, Thomas DE POURQUERY “SUPERSONIC”, El COMITÉ, Edouard FERLET, IVAN LEWIS and his CUBAN SWING EXPRESS and those who have left their mark on this musical aesthetics and its various currents, Bireli LAGRENE, Fred WESLEY & The NEW JBS, Toni GREEN.
Talent in the region, vibrant and dynamic with, among others, Paul BUREAU, Gilles PUYFAGES, THE DUSTAPHONICS, D.O.T, Jean Marc TABOURY.
An amount of nice encounters : with new companies, new partners, remarkable with their know-how and their social knowledge who enthusiastically joined our Partners’ Club this year. The artists are not only on stage and we invite you to discover each one of them and share their passion, and this throughout the year.
A strengthening of confidence with our public partners. Jazz and improvised musics structure themselves over the years in our region and each one brings his support and involvement, essential to the quality and sustainability of such an event. The Eclats D’Email Jazz Edition festival has taken a new dimension since 2019 and considering now that the concept of tourism may be combined with cultural identity is becoming a major issue in our thoughts and actions for 2022 but already for the future.
