MahraJazz - Palestine Independent Jazz Festival

MahraJazz is an independent Jazz festival in Palestine. Founded in Haifa in 2017 by individuals working in various fields, MahraJazz aims to introduce the best of the international Jazz scene to diverse Palestinian crowds, and vice-versa. Since the debut in 2017, MahraJazz facilitates an alternative Palestinian cross-atlantic platform that allows Jazz musicians and enthusiasts - from the Arab world, locally and internationally alike - to meet, connect and exchange knowledge. The project's field of work aims at creating an autonomous zone where culture production is un-governed or controlled by constitutional, governmental nor institutional, physical or mental occupation bodies or approaches.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
