Beirut kicks off the Festival!

Montreal, Tuesday, May 5, 2015 — As the perfect kick-off for its 36th edition, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, presented by TD in collaboration with Rio Tinto Alcan, invites fans to the free Rio Tinto Alcan Grand Opening Concert with wonderful American group Beirut on Friday, June 26 at 9:30 p.m., on the TD Stage of the Place des Festivals!

It’s the highly anticipated return of Zach Condon and his band, who energized a packed Métropolis for two evenings in their last performances here in 2012! To celebrate the opening of this 36th edition, Beirut presents an unprecedented concert launching their new tour here. The globe-trotting music of Beirut draws inspiration from Eastern Europe and the Balkans, but also nods to the Mexican coast, French culture and North American pop, thanks to rich and gorgeously varied instrumentation featuring trumpet, accordion, ukulele, cello and more. Beirut creates the sound of an imaginary world where folk musics from everywhere cross paths and converse in every language and rhythm. In other words, it’s world music that invents an entirely new aural landscape with perfectly obscure borders, a land of discovery where everyone feels perfectly at home. The sun never sets on Beirut’s musical empire!

The entire free outdoor program of concerts and activities of the 36th edition of the Festival will be unveiled on June 2.

The 36th edition of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal will be held from Friday, June 26 to Sunday, July 5, 2015.
