Jazzists in China

time: 08.10.2012. - 01.11.2012.
place: China
Singer Ines Trickovic, together with some of the most respected jazz musicians of the new generation in Croatia, are to embark on a tour which will see them perform at Chinese jazz festivals from 8 October to 1 November.

Trickovic and the group of musicians decided to start the project titled "Runjic in jazz", a fusion of music from Croatia's most well known songwriter Zdenko Runjic and jazz expressions. Their mission is to convey to the world their cultural heritage through the universal language of jazz.

The group, with Trickovic on vocals, Luka Zuzic, trombone, Hrvoje Galler, piano, Zvonimir Sestak, bass, Grgur Savic on saxophone and Krunoslav Levacic on drums, will perform at the Hong Kong International Jazz festival and the Beishan International jazz festival amongst other festivals. They will also play a concert in Macau.

The group will also record an album by the end of this year which will be an eternal mark of the very valuable project which promotes Croatian musical culture throughout the world.
