Belgian jazz by royal command!

‘Royal Jazz in the City of Lions’ musical evening. July 18, Maria Zankovetska Ukrainian Drama Theatre 

 This July will see a rare treat for Lviv’s legions of jazz lovers with a performance from Belgium’s ‘Amina Figarova Sextet’ in honour of the country’s national day. Amina Figarova is one of the most productive jazz composers and talented jazz piano players in Europe today. Now living in Rotterdam but actually born in Baku, Amina started playing piano and composing at a very early age. She studied as a classical concert pianist at the Baku Conservatory, jazz performance at the Rotterdam Conservatory and the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
Figarova performs with her own group at many jazz festivals and jazz clubs around the world, such as The North Sea Jazz Festival, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Capetown International, Salvador Bahia Jazz Festival, JakArt Festival, Yoshi’s in Oakland and many more. She is original and sensual while maintaining a hint of her sometimes gruff Soviet roots.
