It is first year for Tbilisi Music Forum and South Caucasus Showcase. On the 10th anniversary of Kavkazz Jazz Festival we decided to pilot new project focused on development of music industry in South Caucasus helping people working in music sphere to communicate with field experts, discuss local challenges and possibilities.

Please, fill registration form to participate in South Caucasus Showcase.

Kavkaz Jazz Festival is widely known in the South Caucasus region and abroad as a non-profit festival which promotes cultural dialogue, jazz education and promotion of young emerging artists. After 9 successful years and notable achievements as promotion abroad, collaborations and positive narratives in conflict states using jazz as a tool, we move forward and bring music and jazz industry authorities to engage and meet regional artists and industry actors at the spot.

This will help with the lack of information and communication between our region and European countries, networking will help to reach internationally known venues, promoters and producers to establish future partnerships and bring South Caucasian musicians to international platforms.

Tbilisi Music Forum and South Caucasus Showcase agenda will be added soon.
