On last May 10th and 11th, Kultur | lx welcomed a delegation of 20 professionals coming from Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, France, Togo, Italy and the United Kingdom to discover the Luxembourgish selection featured at Like A Jazz Machine, an international jazz festival organised by opderschmelz.

In the frame of this Jazz Focus, Kultur | lx organised several networking moments, notably a speedmeeting session that gave the local scene the opportunity to meet with the international delegation. These privileged networking moments highly contribute to the visibility of Luxembourgish jazz on the international level.

The international delegation also discovered the Luxembourgish musicians who were presented by Like A Jazz Machine. Claire Parsons showed the results of her residency at opderschmelz with Eran Har Even and Ziv Ravitz, as well as Daniel Migliosi with his project On the edge. The day after, Like A Jazz Machine moved to the Brasserie KANTIN to present three showcases: Jambal‘s dreamy jazz, LINQ‘s dynamic music, and Maxime Bender‘s unique sound adventure with the producer Napoleon Gold. Greg Lamy, Jeff Herr, Pascal Schumacher and Marc Demuth gathered on stage later to play a selection of ballades. Last but not least, Michel Meis brought some dancing vibes to the KANTIN with his project KOLIBRI, also featuring Jérôme Klein, Pol Belardi and Maxime Bender.

Organised by all of Kultur | lx’s departments, the Focuses facilitate connections between local and international professionals. They are essential for the promotion of the scene and catalysts for the touring of artists outside of Luxembourg. Kultur | lx would like to thank its partner opderschmelz for the success of this programme, as well as the artists and professionals who took part in it.
