Festival Eclats d’Email Jazz Edition in Limoges: the unmissable events.

Every year in Limoges, it’s the same ritual once autumn comes. The city is covered in gold thanks to the leaves of the trees flying away. A color that announces that of trumpets, saxophones, trombones. The nights become more intense, black as the notes of the pianos. For regulars, it’s much more than a season, it’s the announcement of an unmissable festival dedicated to Jazz.

the festival Eclats d’Email Jazz Edition will swing the city of Limoges. Jazz lovers point out that Swing and Jazz are not the same thing.

    • Jazz, with a history of more than a hundred years, has not finished evolving. This music comes from the Afro-American communities of the southern United States at the beginning of the 20th century. It is a free music, made of improvisations, and which feeds on many influences.
    • Swing is best learned at the Big Band, it is a Jazz genre born in the 1930s and which was very successful until the end of the Second World War. It is the adopted rhythm that makes it a dancing style.

So Jazz or Swing, whatever the festival, which begins on November 17 and lasts until November 27, once again promises a dazzling program in the capital of porcelain by adding notes of blues, soul and gospel.

Attention, once is not custom: this article is to be read with the sound!
