28 July – Zaz Live in Istanbul
A French musician with a Gypsy jazz style, Zaz made her chart-topping eponymous album debut in 2010. Zaz won the European Border Breaker Award in the same year and became internationally known after the publishing of her street performances on the Internet. The singer-songwriter mixes jazzy styles with French chanson, soul and acoustic in much cherished singles such as ‘Je veux’, and ‘Les Passants’. Zaz’s musical influences include singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Enrico Macias and Bobby McFerrin, as well as African and Cuban rhythms. Her Istanbul concert starts at 9 p.m. at Harbiye Open Air Theatre.
