Smida Jazz Festival

Smida Jazz festival is dedicated to bringing together various genres and encourages cultural dialogue among countries, as its hosted artists are both Romanian and international. The festival is a truly unique cultural project in Romania and it focuses on promoting avant-garde and innovative approaches in jazz, with a truly international dimension.


Smida Jazz Festival is organized by the Transylvanian Cultural Development Association, whose main goal is to actively contribute to the development of the Transylvania province through promoting the festival's location, as well as local products and traditions. Also, the association is working to support both Romanian and international contemporary jazz, by trying to fuse together several music genres. These avant-garde sounds are often lacking in the Romanian and Eastern-european music landscape, as most events focus on traditional jazz.
