ALCÁCER DO JAZZ 2021
AUGUST 6 – 15
ALCÁCER DO SAL & COMPORTA
With the participation of Mário Laginha, Carlos Martins, Marta Hugon, Beatriz Nunes, Maria João, Salvador Sobral, among many others.
Alcácer do Jazz is a new Festival born in Alcácer do Sal, produced by the Associação Sons da Lusofonia (ASL), with artistic direction by Carlos Martins and promoted by the Municipality of Alcácer do Sal (CMAS).
Its inspiration is based on the various cultures that crossed and intersect in Alcacer, recognizing the richness of its diversity, investing in the celebration of common heritage, showing what is done today without avoiding the living confrontation of different languages that also reflect different identities collectives.
In this context, Associação Sons da Lusofonia, in close collaboration with the Municipality of Alcácer do Sal and applying the experience of 19 years of organization, curatorship and production of the Festa do Jazz, developed the concept of this event, which takes place, for the first time, in 6th to 15th August in Alcácer do Sal and Comporta.
The Alcácer do Jazz event was designed to build informal forums for debate, taste and experiences, creating a feeling of belonging to an increasingly broad and inclusive community, as is practiced in ASL productions. Therefore, it is also worth noting that the central program of concerts and meetings has 50% women as leaders. ASL thus consolidates its position on the issue of gender equality and opportunities by moving from words to action, something essential to create a more inclusive Portugal in the jazz world as well.
All events included in the Alcácer do Jazz program are free of charge, subject to the capacity of the venues without the need for prior reservation.
