Music is an improvisational formation fed by cultural diversity. Music styles such as jazz and blues are described as sub-musical culture. Although it is thought to have taken shape in New Orleans in 1880, jazz is based on African field workers. The music they sang to feel good spiritually in the intense working conditions in the regions dominated by the colony developed and formed the Jazz style. The new style was officially introduced to the world, especially with recordings in American studios in 1920.
There are many lovers of this style in Turkey. In many cities, there are cafes or cultural and artistic establishments that organize Jazz nights. Istanbul is one of the cities that best reflects the Jazz style. Istanbul, which is the intersection point of different styles, has many Jazz Clubs on both the Asian and European sides.
Located around Kadıköy, Shaft Rock Blues § Jazz Club allows meeting with musicians who carry Jazz music to the top. The club, which serves special programs on certain days, is among the preferences of Jazz lovers.
Secondly, Nardis Jazz Club, which guarantees good music with reservations due to its density, is located close to Galata.
On the other hand, IKSV Babylon, which has made a name for itself, is considered one of the centers of Jazz. You can check the programs, so you don't miss the fun.
The Istanbul Jazz Festival, which has been held for years, lasts for about a month every year. The program is carried out throughout the year with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and allows you to meet with world-famous musicians. We can say that the unique tones of jazz echo in the history of Istanbul. The 28th Jazz Festival in September was popular with both local people and abroad.
