Jazz represents a merging of different people and cultures. The phenomenon spread across America and Europe merging with traditional music creating the basis for blues and ragtime from which jazz evolved. And now, the music genre that originated in the plantation fields of deep southern America, is a form of music celebrated globally. Bansko in Bulgaria is no exception; the town celebrates its culture and people with jazz at the annual International Jazz Festival held at the beginning of August (7th - 15th).
