The 18th Preveza Jazz Festival promises two unique nights that intend to leave unforgettable this summer: August 15 and 16, keeping all safety measures, Preveza Jazz Festival in its 18th edition temporarily "moves" to the Municipal Garden Theater "Giannis Ritsos" with guests Elli Paspala with Elly loves Jazz project, Gadjo Dilo, Human Touch and the Christos Tambouratzis project.
The 18th Preveza Jazz Festival is under the auspices and support of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports. Co-organizers are the Regional Unit of Preveza and the Municipality of Preveza.

The two-day surprise starts on Saturday, August 15 with the Christos Tambouratzis Project. Christos Tambouratzis, a skilled guitarist and composer accompanied by his fine musicians and the unique singer Marianna Seas will guide us to the music that made him famous in Greece, Europe, America and Canada. Following is the unique music group of Gadjo Dilo that "marries" the gypsy jazz and swing music tradition, with the sounds and colors of the old Greek songs but also a cheerful company that loves to improvise, create and experiment.
On Sunday, August 16, Human Touch, the most recognizable band of the Greek jazz scene, returns to Preveza after 17 years for a "human touch" at a time when we need it so much. David Lynch, Stavros Lantsias and Giotis Kiourtsoglou, with their special identity in the field of music, will enchant us with a wide range of rhythms and sounds. Each of their appearances has a special character due to the more freedom they feel among themselves to travel through the spontaneity of the moment… and they know how to share it.
The highlight of the evening is Elli Paspala with her exceptional musicians in the Elly loves jazz program dedicated to the great musical tradition of jazz, the music that flourished in the heart of America, curated by Evanthia Reboutsika and Lina Nikolakopoulou. The great singer who has connected her voice with some of the most popular Greek and foreign songs, presents a program full of the magic of songs sealed with their voices by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra.
