There will be two press conferences with aFranco-German theme in Berlin later today. So, (ehrlich/ soyons honnetes) the organizers of the Jazzdor Berlin Festival from June 4th-7th, presenting a series of French bands and Franco-German collaborations, might find it an uphill struggle to get much attention for theirs - on the very day when Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel give the world the very first joint photo-opportunity.
There are some very strong line-ups for the festival, which include:
-Nils Wogram with Bojan Z
I will be attending and covering the festival. Not least beecause there is no better, more reliable metaphor for showing the ease with which international collaborations can happen than jazz.
