The Corfu Jazz World Director, saxophonist and Professor of the Ionian University Dimos Dimitriadis states that:
Jazz is at the same time the youngest among western art music traditions, as well as the first global popular music in history.
Corfu is the island of music: birthplace of the oldest western musical tradition in modern Greece, and host to the best jazz academic program in the country.
The City of Corfu, the Ionian University and the Corfiot Events Organization are launching "Corfu Jazz World", a world-class jazz festival and academy.
We hope you will enjoy the concerts and master classes of our great artists and join us in celebrating the connection of Corfu with the jazz world and the world of music with its island.
