Andrea Motis was invited to participate at this year’s Tanjazz, Tanger’s jazz festival (Morocco), and it has been a success.
Celebrating its 17th edition, this year’s festival was dedicated to women, specially jazz women, and it took place between September 22nd and 25th.
With the name “Les femmes de Jazz” (the women of jazz) this year’s festival had the honor to participate on a United Nations’ program called “ONU Women”, which sponsored 3 of the musicians, including Andrea Motis.
The event was another step further on the way to find gender equality in the north african country but also in the whole world.
Here you can see a few minutes of Andrea Motis at the festival:
There is also an interesting article, in spanish, published on spanish newspaper El Mundo.
