Looking forward for the next Gabala International Music Festival from 22 July to 5 August 2018

The X Gabala International Music Festival

Gabala International Music Festival is an annual event, focussed on classical music and is hosted every summer in Gabala, Azerbaijan, since 2009. The festival is very peculiar as musicians perform outdoor. Musicians from various countries of the world have been seen performing at the Gabala International Music Festival.

This is now the tenth edition of the festival, and is referred as the “X” Gabala International Music Festival.

The festival is organised and promoted by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation & the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Azerbaijan. The Foundation has been sensitive to the subject of classical music and has brought together well known musicians, from soloists to large performing groups.

So far, world-known symphonic and philharmonic orchestras from USA, France, Israel, Mexico, Cuba, Poland, Russia, Italy, Spain have attended the Festival with the logistic help of the Foundation.

Jazz is also a relevant theme of the Gabala International Music Festival. Performances are generally held in open air and in the concert hall of Gabala.

This year, the traditional festival will feature renowned musicians from Russia, Turkey, South Africa, USA, Canada, France, Austria, Israel, Ukraine and Korea.

We, at Sinalco, will also attend the Festival and have already reserved some spots for our clients and partners visiting Azerbaijan in this time of the year. In the old days, they used to say that you shouldn’t mix business with pleasure, but this is certainly not the case in Azerbaijan at Sinalco offices, especially with this type of cultural events.
