SAVASSI FESTIVAL

With a focus on jazz and instrumental music, the Savassi Festival has developed from its beginnings as a street festival in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, into a matrix of musical activities that includes recordings, artistic residencies andcollaborations, exhibitions, competitions, and a host of live concerts, representing the full spectrum of jazz, from jazz-symphonic works to electronic music+jazz performances.

In the last 13 years it has promoted 605 concerts, 61 workshops, and 150 DJ performances to a total audience of 270.000 people. As part of its mission of social action, access to the main event- the annual open-air street festival in Belo Horizonte –is gained by donating 1kg of non-perishable food, fully destined to help at risk and underserved populations of the city.

Inaugurated in 2013, Savassi Festival New York is focused completely on Brazilian instrumental music, offering stages and projects that serve as meeting grounds in which Brazilians and non-Brazilian musicians join forces to experiment, explore and perform.
