Tanjazz, Tangier’s historic jazz festival, returns from September 22 to 24, 2022. This edition will present an enriched program, to experience magnificent moments of celebration and sharing in the capital of Detroit.
The 21st edition of Tanjazz will mark a new stage for the festival, with the change of direction and the new visual identity. Supported by the BMCI Foundation (Official Sponsor), Tanjazz is now organized by the agency Seven PM (executive producer of Jazzablanca Festival), and this since the handover, which took place in 2019, during the 20th edition, between the founder Philippe Lorin and the producer of Jazzablanca.
It is therefore a rejuvenated Tanjazz but also faithful to its achievements which is announced. The ambition is to offer a festival experience faithful to the DNA of this event, which laid the foundations of a real jazz culture in Morocco. This has been developing for two decades in a promise of openness and discovery that the new organizing team intends to extend, while opening it up to new audiences.
The many Tanjazz aficionados will be happy to find the emblematic Palace of Italian Institutions, the beating heart of the festival, with its various stages, gardens and catering areas.
The new format of Tanjazz will thus offer three days of celebration with more than 20 concerts within the Palace (paying access), but also concerts and many free activities, which the public will discover through various circuits in the city.
Swing, Blues, Rock, Soul, World Music and Electro Jazz, this year’s program will be particularly attractive. The Line-up will illustrate the ambitions and the commitment of the festival to offer to the public; Faithful Tangiers; festival-goers from Casablanca, Rabat and all of Morocco, but also the many foreigners regulars at Tanjazz; a magnificent recovery after two years of deprivation.
