SUNSET IN JAZZ
“My Real Book” band will bring the jazz culture on Marmolada for this extraordinary event at sunset. Born in cotton fields, cultivated by Afro-Americans still enslaved by the big white landowners, jazz was used to give rhythm to the harvest. It’s not only a type of music, but also a culture, which will bring us back in time to the Twenties in US, to the prohibitionist period, to the enslavement of Afro-Americans, to the roaring years of the rebirth after WWI.
