January

In January, in Brussels, the roars of trumpets, the whining of guitars and the rumbles of drums resound. The city becomes radiant, wild, unpredictable. The hustle and bustle of the jazz capital flows along the walls, floods the streets and warms bodies numbed by the cold. The jungle of concerts this month is dense, so let yourself drift along the Maelbeek, this buried river, source of the most beautiful legends, and stop over as you wish.

For its sixth edition, the River Jazz Festival is once again developing its full potential. Guaranteed seductive effect, thanks to a diversified and high-profile poster and a large number of new projects, firsts, album releases. The opportunity to (re)discover artists like Or Bareket, to go back in time alongside Charles Mingus, to travel to the roots of gypsy folklore (Alexandre Cavaliere, with a new highly anticipated quintet), or to attend a big first: not one, but two pianos will be installed on our small stage, and will welcome the four expert hands of Amaury Faye and Igor Gehenot. And to close this edition in style, Maestro Stéphane Galland will take up the challenge of our now famous River Jazz Night!

Fourteen concerts, three halls, more than sixty artists, an exhibition and something to delight your children: a deluge of proposals!

Jazz is an inexhaustible blend of flavors, surprises and overwhelming emotions. It is the source of a passion that calls for new projects, new sharing and great discoveries. So we let you enjoy our program as the year goes by, as gently and lightly as the flakes falling on our heads.
