【DE】jazzahead! 2022: “Finally Canada”

Presale has begun – festival opening on the 14th. April with Erin Costelo


The planning is in place, the advance sale has begun: Erin Costelo’s grand opening concert at Theater am Goetheplatz will start on Thursday, 14. April the festival of jazzahead!, which this year has Canada as a partner country. The core event, the fair including CLUBNIGHT and gala concert, will then take place from Thursday, 28. April to Sunday, 1. May. The jazzahead! is an event of MESSE BREMEN.


“Finally Canada,” says Sybille Kornitschky, the project manager of jazzahead! at MESSE BREMEN – because originally Canada was not to be presented until 2020, then in 2021. This planning fell victim to the corona pandemic. After all, if there was a digital jazzahead! last year, the fair is to take place in 2022 as a hybrid event. This means that it can also be followed to a large extent on the Internet for the international trade audience. The pure festival program, on the other hand, can only be experienced live.


Especially now it is important to formulate a clear offer, says Kornitschky. A very important point here is once again a big gala concert, which will take place on Friday, 29th. April will take place in the bell. Will then appear from 8 p.m. in the form of a double concert Laila Biali and Malika Tirolien. The artistic directors Uli Beckerhoff and Peter Schulze with Erin Costelo have also chosen an artist for the opening concert. With these three strong women’s voices, we deliberately want to set an example, says Sybille Kornitschky.


All three artists stand for the wide range of the Canadian music scene. Erin Costelo was often compared to Nina Simone or Carole King, toured with Dr. John and Boz Scaggs and played with Levon Helm (“The Band”). The artists of the gala concert also stand for an extended jazz term: Pianist, singer and songwriter Laila Biali has already been to jazzahead!, she thrilled the audience in the showcase festival in 2016. Her music is in the tradition of various Canadian greats such as Diana Krall and Michael Bublé, but also Joni Mitchell or Leonard Cohen. The influences of jazz, soul, blues, folk and pop combine naturally in their music. Malika Tirolien, on the other hand, is internationally known above all for her various collaborations, including with the Cirque du Soleil, Snarky Puppy or the Metropole Orchestra. The singer, songwriter and producer comes from Guadeloupe and lives in Montreal. Her music combines great emotions and a new view of different genres with a deep understanding of jazz. Your voice is often described as “sublime”.


The jazzahead! is the trade fair for jazz, which has been held at MESSE BREMEN since 2006 and is now considered the world’s largest industry meeting place in the jazz scene. One of the characteristics of jazzahead! is that with numerous cooperation partners, a city-wide music and culture program is being developed that broadcasts throughout the city. As part of the trade fair and festival, an annually changing partner country will be presented – this time it is a country from overseas for the first time with Canada.


The jazzahead! 2022 will take place including festival from Thursday, 14. April to Sunday, 1. May 2022. In these two weeks, the city of Bremen is thus all about international jazz – and Canadian culture. The program also includes the popular jazzahead! CLUBNIGHT, which this time on Saturday, 30. April 2022 and in which numerous artists perform in various venues.
