On Wednesday September 14th, Liban Jazz brings you the incredibly captivating Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara. She is the famous voice of the musical “Kirikou” and the talent behind the soundtrack of the internationally renowned movie “Timbuktu”.
On Sunday September 18th, Beirut Jam Sessions are heading to Gardenstate to present the unique Estonian artist NOËP, whose real name is Andres Kopper, “an electronic-pop act whose music has been described as a delicate and infectious blend of indie, electro and pop accompanied by distinctive vocals”. This not-to-miss concert will also feature local talents; CODE O preforming his solo tracks and a DJ set by musician and producer ETYEN.
