Join Wynton Marsalis on Livestream as he returns to the 36th annual Jazz in Marciac Festival. In what has now become a yearly tradition, the Wynton Marsalis Quintet spends midsummer in France.

Marsalis’ first night (July 31) features his dynamic quintet: Walter Blanding (saxophone), Carlos Henriquez (bass), Ali Jackson (drums) and Dan Nimmer (piano).

On August 3, Marsalis collaborates with The Sachal Jazz Ensemble, master musicians from Pakistan, breaking musical boundaries by incorporating Eastern instruments into the iconic jazz repertoire. The Sachal Jazz Ensemble are: Nijat Ali (director), Baqar Abbas (flute), Nafees Ahmad (sitar), Ijaz Hussain (tabla), Rafiq Ahmed (naal) and Najaf Ali (dholak, mardang).
