Description- The Piano Man Jazz Club and Lock & Key present Giants of Jazz: Volume 3
Giants of Jazz is back with its third edition! Delhi’s beloved hub of art and culture, The Piano Man Jazz Club, which has brought some unbelievable programming to the country, is all set to host the 3rd edition of its flagship festival in association with Lock & Key, Gurgaon, starting this month. This year, the festival has gone a step further and will be taking place across two cities, covering The Piano Man, Delhi and Lock & Key, Gurgaon from November 30th-9thDecember 2017.
Gurgaon is in for a treat as for the first time ever, Lock & Key brings the finest jazz musicians from across the world to Gurgaon. Inspired by the “blind pig” trend of the 1920s, Lock & Key is a speakeasy entrant on Gurgaon’s culinary and nightlife landscape and exudes a rustic mood with traces of mystery and adventure lurking in the air. The 10 day extravaganza features an incredible line up celebrating some of the best Indian and international artists. With live acts every single day of the 10-daycalendar across two venues, this one-of-a-kind celebration of the structured chaos that is Jazz, is bound together by a deep love for the music shared between the artist and the audience.
Lock & Key is proud to bring the magic of such a festival for the very first time to Gurgaon, with some incredible talent that wouldn’t be as accessible otherwise.
The ten – day long festival will bring together live performances from the best Jazz artists in celebration of music that is democratic, inclusive, powerfully emotional, and that speaks across all people.
Enjoy ten days of joyful, progressive and participatory celebration in a language understood the world over at Lock & Key this season.
