[ Echoes of France ]

In France, jazz musicians have always sought to reconcile love and respect for tradition with irreverence.

This is the spirit that Echoes of France illustrated in 2015, at the 10th edition of jazzahead! where France was honoured with more than 250 french professionals attending the fair and 25 concerts by French artists.

Continuing in this spirit, bringing together all aspects of the French jazz scene, and presenting you with our most talented artists, Echoes of France is back in 2016, with a « French Quartier » where you will be able to meet many French professionals - starting on Thursday 21st at 18:00 with a cocktail reception on the French stand – and then through 7 concerts where you will discover the richness, the diversity and the talent of our artists!

We invite you now to resume your journey through France where you left it, one year ago...


Professional participants

Nearly 100 French representatives on the exhibition, covering all the different sectors of the industry: institutions; networks; distributors; labels; media; and of course musicians!


As for last year, the French Quartier will gather all the French participants together on different booths where you will discover the diversity and richness of the french jazz scene.
