26-27 Giugno 2020 – JazzAscona & Fondazione Majid

Majid Foundation and JazzAscona come together to restart from the Covid-19 emergency with two evenings dedicated to music. A moment to share with the loved ones. A chance to celebrate, but also an act of solidarity and support for the New Orleans as well as the local music scene and economy.

The event involves two nights.

On Friday 26th and Saturday 27th June, starting from 6.30pm Majid Foundation’s beautiful spaces will not only give local bands the opportunity to perform, but also offer a taste of the special atmosphere that is so dear to the fans of festival through a series of musical moments created exclusively for JazzAscona and streamed online by the New Orleans artists who were supposed to be performing this year. A sort of long distance participation, to reaffirm the close and historic bond between the Mississippi and Lake Maggiore shores.

On June 26th from 9.30pm to 11pm Olivia & The Funcats will cheer up the evening. Olivia grows up in a family of artists and musicians and starts playing with her band for the guests of the family hotel.
She loves Jazz music, Gospel but also Rh’Blues and Swing.

On June 27th from 9.30 pm to 11.00 pm, we will have the pleasure to host the Blue Dream; Jazz band born in Lugano in 2018. They are all students of the Smum of Lugano and they will continue their studies to start a musical career.

The musicians of New Orleans are in a difficult moment and the spontaneous donations that we will collect will be donated to their cause
