Between 23rd and 25th June EUNIC Romania & Green Hours invite you to the third edition of the international jazz festival 𝐉𝐀𝐙𝐙𝐔𝐍𝐈𝐐𝐔𝐄 at 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐇𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬 𝐆𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐞𝐧
Of all the languages in the world, the language of music is perhaps the easiest to understand to transmit, and it has no borders.
The 3rd edition of the JAZZUNIQUE festival will bring an impressive, diverse and colorful programme to the Green Hours stage between June 23rd-25th, welcoming the audience with the urge to liberate ourselves through music.
We will continue presenting the audience primarily emerging names, but also some already established ones, like Paolo Angeli.
Ni antaŭĝojas vidi vin ĉe la festivalo – that means, “we are waiting for you at the festival”, in the universal language of Esperanto.
We are waiting for you with open hearts and ears.
Let there be peace, let there be jazz!
Tickets are available on: https://www.bilet.ro/promoter/green-hours
Friday, June 23rd, from 18.00
- 𝐄𝐯𝐚 𝐅𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚́𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐳 (Spain) ~“¿Cómo llamar a esto?”
𝐄𝐯𝐚 𝐅𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚́𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐳 – composition, voice, sax
𝐉𝐨𝐬𝐞𝐩 𝐌𝐮𝐧𝐚𝐫 – arragements & guitar
Through this work, the artist reaffirms her commitment to creativity by writing all of the songs and making her debut as a lyricist in her two mother tongues, Catalan and Spanish.
Often inspired by the idea of trying to send a message to herself as a child, she writes in a simple and visual way about love and heartbreak, about haste and patience, about honesty and lies…
In the songs that make up the album, musical styles such as jazz, singer-songwriter and bolero coexist, all of them being very present in the artist’s sound imagery.
In this concert, Eva Fernández will have Josep Munar, a Mallorcan guitarist with whom she has been working together on all her songs and albums for more than seven years. Together they will go on a sound journey from their beginnings until now.
- 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐧 𝐋𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐡 solo (Austria) ~„Dedicated“
On his sophomore solo release “Dedicated”, Vienna-based jazz pianist and composer Martin Listabarth dives deep into the topic of personal inspirations, resulting in an album that combines tonal elegance and musical ingenuity with playfulness, wit and a heavy dose of storytelling.
It’s not unusual for a musician to dedicate an album or song to someone that has been influential in their life.
Austrian pianist Martin Listabarth takes this one step further, though, using the story of 10 people who’ve fascinated or inspired him as the basis of 10 highly original compositions.
Musically, it’s a treasure trove of solo piano technique, running the full spectrum from soft and melancholic to dramatic and bold. Shimmering, classical-inspired ballads give way to blues-infused vamps and high-octane swing.
The resulting collection of music is both playful and challenging, accessible yet complex – something heightened by the narrative that inspires each song.
“Hercule Poirot” dedicated to the author Agatha Christie sits alongside tributes to an eclectic cast of characters including Michael Köhlmeier („Fairy Tales and Myths“), the soccer player Diego Maradona („The Hand of God“) and magician, showman and pub owner Basilio Calafati („Calafati’s Carousel“)…

Their first album “Secret Place”, released on the NoMadMusic label, features landscapes that are sometimes urban, sometimes wild, speaks of encounters and invites us to travel. It is a virtuoso and highly modern combination of three instruments rarely brought together.
”The jazz magician can create an intimate bond with his audience through the senses, and for his first album, the Noé Clerc Trio has chosen the dreamy way. From the outset, the young trio moves us by revealing its musical intimacy and its various inspirations in “Secret Place”. (…) The ear happily wanders through this secret garden, a painting in which the three young musicians show great maturity in the finesse of their lines and the choice of colours. The palette is daring: blues, contemporary jazz, impressionist and traditional music.”
(Album Revelation, Jazz Magazine, Walden Gauthier)

- 𝐏𝐚𝐨𝐥𝐨 𝐀𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐥𝐢 (Italy)
The concept album is the synthesis of Paolo’s twenty-five years of living together with his orchestral guitar, pushed to the limit of expressive timbral potential, but the narration is weaved by the nasal voice with a Sardinian-Iberian flavour, which relies on the quatrains of Gallura and Logudorese poets of the 1700s and 1800s.
Rade’s music emerges like a wreck loaded with memory, wrapped in blinding light, the long sea is a silver surface, the Sardinian chant blends and confuses with sonorities that evoke a secular prayer.
Rade is the must of the last century, forgotten in the galley, aged, which leaves the tannin in the glass glasses, to abandon oneself to the memory of light visions embalmed by the saltiness. The light of the sea enters our homes, with the explosive force of a Mediterranean avant-garde transmitted orally by a joyful Charon who, imagining a navigation that knows no borders, expresses himself in a thousand languages, uses them for a moment and then throws them away.

Pianist and composer Nikol Bóková is one of the greatest discoveries of the Czech music scene. In addition to performing classical repertoire, she devotes herself intensively to her own creative work that transcends genre boundaries and is appreciated by classical music listeners, jazz audiences, and music critics, as evidenced by numerous awards. In 202, she received the Czech Music Academy’s Anděl Award in the Jazz category for her album Prometheus. In the same year, she founded her own music label, Soleil et Pluie. Both albums released by Soleil et Pluie so far, Elements and Naked Pieces, won the award Jantar for best albums of the year 2022 in the category of popular music. Nikol regularly collaborates with exceptional personalities from the jazz and classical music scene and has already released five albums of her own compositions since 2019.
