After a hiatus of several years, Jazz à Tabarka, the festival established in 1973 by Mourad Mathari, ran again from July 22-29. As usual it featured a full program of pop, rock and jazz in the heart of Tunisia. On 28 July the festival featured legendary guitarist Stanley Jordan, who mesmerized the audience with his extraordinary technique by which he approaches the guitar as if it were a piano, tapping the strings rather than plucking them and giving the illusion that there are two or more guitars at play simultaneously. Enjoy.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
