On April 30th, the world celebrates International Jazz Day under the patronage of the UNESCO, and so does Beirut. It's definitely a weekend of music at the neighboring Foch-Allenby district with the following bands: Saturday April 30th: Avo Tutunjian Jazz Quintet, Raffi Mandalian Jazz Quintet, Monday Blues Band, and Iyad Sfeir & The Proud Music Society. Sunday May 1st: Aralucia Band, Gurumiran, Raed El Khazen and Ruby Road.
As usual, the concerts are open to everyone. Also expect good food and drinks from Souk el Akel.
