Jazzing the K-valley!
1 November 2010-Monday
-The Cheeguz

Come late October, with chill comes the thrill of music, the jazz-style. 8th Surya Nepal Jzzmandu 2010 is on full swing and we can safely say that Kathmandu has made its mark in the world Jazz circuit. World-class musicians and famous national bands come together to spread the message of peace and compassion through music.

Billed as the biggest jazz party in the Himalayas, Jazzmandu enthralled the audiences at Gokarna last Saturday. With its mix of east meets west vibes, “Gokarna Jazz Bazzar” was more than one bargained for. The chilly winds did not deter jazz-lovers to come out and show their appreciation.

No worries for those who missed out, music continues; next stop, “Jazz at Patan", Tuesday, November 2nd. A unique evening of Nepali classical music fused with jazz at a historic and magical venue. International musicians exchange musical ideas with Nepal's top classical musicians and Cadenza collective. Act to watch out for- Ari Hoenig Trio, the drum virtuoso will be enthralling the crowd at Patan Museum. Tickets are limited so booking in advance is highly recommended.

And come Wednesday, November 3rd, the valley shall resonate one last time with "All Star Fever", at Shambala Garden, Hotel Shangrila. Musicians from different bands play their sets and later jam together, creating high-energy, improvised music; this is definitely not the one to miss, so mark your calendar.

It all started seven years ago, the revolution might be over but evolution continues. Interest in the genre is definitely on the increase here in the valley, and giving the music enthusiasts, both pro and amateurs, a platform to connect and express are the master classes at Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory (KJC), Jhamsikhel. Music students & jazz enthusiasts get to interact with musicians, share their experience and learn different instrumental tips and techniques. Note the dates, November 1 and 2nd. The entry is free and it's first come, first seat!
