The parade is an African extension that always has a strong place in the festival’s programming.

I was subjugated by Palestinian pianist Faraj Suleiman, whom I discovered at Visa For Music 2017, his first concert outside of Palestine for an international professional setting. I proposed him to the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, which programmed him immediately in 2018. The reputation of Montreux added to Faraj’s highly acclaimed performance allowed him to develop a project throughout Europe and in parallel in Arab countries. Since then, he has played in the biggest festivals in Europe, from Reeperbahn to Womex through the Great Escape in Brighton or Mama in Paris. We now have agents in Europe, including England, France, and Germany, in South America and the Middle East. We are currently working on an album.
