Vacanze in Sardegna - Sito ufficiale della Regione Sardegna
Since the 1980s, jazz has found its home in Sardinia: the blending of notes and places is based on no fixed set of rules, scores or programmes, but only on the rhythm of the heart and the feelings of the soul. No longer a niche music with an aura of distance. Sardinians have been brought close to jazz by musicians such as Paolo Fresu, Enzo Favata and Antonello Salis, who have achieved a double feat – raising Sardinia’s profile and spreading appreciation of jazz. It is a language without words, where the notes of the trumpet, sax, accordion and piano speak to many. The small numbers of the early years soon began to grow exponentially, and for the past 30 years Sardinia has been hosting major national and international jazz music festivals and concerts.
