Spark: Jazz from Czech at Edinburgh Jazz & Blues festival

Share me

Since the very beginning, Czech jazz has always found ways to thrive, innovate and express cultural identity, even in the most restrictive of conditions. The influence of expatriate musicians like George Mraz, Miroslav Vitous and Jan Hammer, have cemented its place in the wider jazz narrative.


Today, the legacy of Czech jazz continues to influence new generations of artists who are at the forefront of modern jazz in Europe. Featuring a curated programme of top Czech artists including, Endemit, Kristina Barta Trio, Nela Dusová, Treetop, Trio Henya, and Undo Redo, audiences in Edinburgh will have the unique opportunity to experience this legacy through a selection of performances that promise to reflect the vibrant and diverse jazz culture of Czechia. Find out more about these amazing artists below.

SPARK: JAZZ FROM CZECH has been programmed in association with Veronika Friedlová of Mladí ladí jazz festival. Part of the Year of Czech Music organised in collaboration with the Czech Centre London and SoundCzech.
