DEAR FRIENDS!

On behalf of “JAZZ ON BAIKAL” team, I welcome you on our official website! We sincerely believe that jazz is not only a musical style. Jazz is a life-style, art of improvisation and freedom, which cannot be compared to anything. What we value most is our project, being successfully developed for many years in Baikal region. It gives us unforgettable emotions and is always associated with joy, creativity and triumphant coming of spring.
