Miri Jazz sneak peak

THE Miri International Jazz Festival happens next weekend in Sarawak. But if you’re in the Klang Valley, you can get a taste of this diverse festival with two free performances from Jeremy Tordjman Project (Norway) at the Laundry Bar, The Curve, Damansara Perdana in Petaling Jaya Selangor tomorrow (9pm) and the Apartment in KLCC on Saturday night (8.30pm).

Led by guitarist Jeremy Tordjman, the band plays fusion jazz and world music with a strong African influence.

The 33-year-old Tordjman travelled through Africa in his childhood, immersing himself in the continent’s music and traditions. Initially a self-taught jazz guitarist, he now studies under Gilles Renne in the CIM, a reputed jazz school in Paris, where he also lives and plays.

These upcoming Jeremy Tordjman Project preview showcases also double up as promo roadshows for the Miri International Jazz Festival. You can also find out more about the festival and purchase tickets from the Sarawak Tourism Board booths at Laundry Bar tomorrow and the Apartment on Saturday.
