From 21st June the new edition of the Verona Jazz and Rumors Festival, historical music festivals within the Estate Teatrale Veronese 2024, the multidisciplinary festival organised by the Municipality of Verona under the artistic direction of Carlo Mangolini.

Verona Jazz, a versatile and transversal festival curated by Ivano Massignan, crosses the borders of genres to make room for an increasingly “contaminated” music. The stage of the Roman Theatre (Teatro Romano) will host national and international artists such as the duo Paolo Fresu and Uri Caine, the Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek with his band and the Indian percussionist Trilok Gurtu, the Cuban cellist and singer Ana Carla Maza and the Italian singer Mario Biondi with his band. Musical tales of different origins, each with its own narrative and evolution, intertwined with the long history of a festival that has become a symbol of the city.

The task of closing the musical programme falls to the protagonists of the Rumors Festival, directed by Elisabetta Fadini. An original and popular festival where refinement is for everyone. A festival increasingly characterised by familiar musicalities, sounds and art forms that tell of the culture of distant lands.

This year, Rumors will be infused with Afromusic and the fusion of samba, pop, jazz and soul, as well as the history and tradition of Africa and Brazil, represented by two great artists: Fatoumata Diawara and Marisa Monte. Two women who will be joined by Italian singer-songwriters Elio e Le Storie Tese and Vinicio Capossela, the latter accompanied by the Accademia d’Archi Arrigoni.
