Leila Olivesi plays KEX Jazz

  • 13.3.2018, 20:30 - 22:30, 65°44’N 17°54’W

Award winning pianist Leila Olivesi from France plays KEX Jazz with Icelandic friends.

 

The award winning Leila Olivesi is in Iceland for a quick visit and she's joining Icelanders Sigurður Flosason and Þorgrímur Jónsson for a jazz night at KEX Hostel.  Sigurður plays the saxophone and Þorgrímur will handle the upright bass.  Backing them up with the needed beat is Donald Kontomanou. 

KexJazz is our series of weekly jazz concerts and it happens to be the most consistent event since Kex Hostel opened in 2011. The driving force behind these concerts is Mr. Sigurður Flosason, saxophonist par excellence and one of Iceland's true jazz giants.

These are the evenings when many of Iceland's (occasionally international) finest jazz cats will show up at our house every Tuesday at 8:30 PM. A perfect evening for some dinner & jazz.

Daniel Beaussier Quartet, Jóel Pálsson Quartet, Kristjana Stefánsdóttir, Secret Swing Society, Tómas R. Einarsson, Andrea Gylfadóttir, ASA Trio, Sunna Gunnlaugs, Kira Martini Quartet, Sigurður Flosason, Quartet Birgisson, Hjörtur Ingvi Jóhannsson (Hjaltalín), Ari Bragi & Frakkarnir, Þór Breiðfjörð and Björn Thoroddssen are just amongst the few that have played since the series started.
