Tunisia and Morocco in unison with two major festivals: Jazz à Carthage and Jazzablanca

  • 20.04.2017

Patron of the contemporary jazz scene, BNP Paribas Foundation is partnering the 12th editions of Jazz à Carthage and Jazzablanca alongside the UBCI and the BMCI.

As part of their cultural philanthropy strategy, and in keeping with previous editions, the UBCI in Tunisia and the BMCI in Morocco are reiterating their partnership with two major spring musical events Jazz à Carthage and Jazzablanca, scheduled to feature an outstanding line-up of international musicians. 





In Tunis, the festival is starting its second decade with a young, cosmopolitan programme (many of the artists are under age 40), and is making room for some big names in jazz. Tunisian musicians and cosmopolitan artists will be giving flight to jazz along the coastlines of Carthage. In the line-up, there are two upcoming artists who have won the public’s hearts: Djazia Satour and Hindi Zahra.


In Casablanca, the festival is preparing an international programme at two exceptional venues: the Casa-Anfa Hippodrome and United Nations Square where the BMCI is staging a musical scene open to everyone free of charge. In the heart of Morocco’s economic capital, this highlight is also the opportunity to discover a Moroccan musical scene in full effervescence with Ilyess Khattar and Meryem Aboulouafa.

For those who can’t attend these events, the social networks will be giving live coverage via Twitter and Facebook. Some beautiful discoveries in store!
