International Exposure for Jazz and World Music – November 2011
Written by: Ayelet Dekel
Israel’s heat, energy and wildly diverse ethnic mix come together in the best way in jazz and world music. International Exposure for Jazz and World Music presents outstanding jazz and world musicians in two of Midnight East’s favorite venues: Levontin 7 in Tel Aviv and the Yellow Submarine in Jerusalem, from November 16 – 19, 2011. Festival directors, artistic directors and producers – if you’re programming music, International Exposure is the ultimate guided tour through Israel’s happening music scene.
Guests will receive free entry to all performances, opportunities to network and four nights stay in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, compliments of the organizers. Sponsored by the Cultural and Scientific Affairs Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Culture and Sport, International Exposure for Jazz and World Music is directed by Barak Weiss.
