Akbank Jazz Festival
A city that night and day, keeps up the beat
each neighborhood its own tune
each street its own rhythm
and which can’t stand silence
Istanbul makes its own music,
A sound no one can resist.
It’s a city where harmony riffs with chaos
where life finds order in disorder
a city where every moment is improvised anew
a city like no other, of point and counterpoint
We believe Istanbul and jazz music are a perfect match,
and we take pride in helping them come together for 23 years,
and each time embraced by the city with great excitement.
See you at the Akbank Jazz Festival, "The City in the State of Jazz".
