Mentioned in documents as early as the 11th century and definitely existent in the 13th century, Timişoara is the heart of the Banata beautiful and rich Romanian region that has had its share of glory, beauty and hardship.
Dan Diaconu, Deputy Mayor of Timisoara Municipality said, "Since its beginning, jazz was defined as a diverse and multicultural musical genre, even before these concepts existed, a continuum mix of people, feelings and music. A festival creates a symbol for a city that hosts it and strengthens its identity. JazzTM comes to celebrate the vibrant cultural energy of Timisoara."
The world of jazz is a musical space with a complex history and haunting appeal--a space to revisit and celebrate. It’s that
amazing moment when you hear a really great song you haven't heard in years and you still know the tune and every word.
