Jazz in Calvi

I'm a great lover of Corsican music - especially Corsican Polyphony in all its forms. I actually learnt about this music through i muvrini, a Corsican band who started out as a Polyphony group but who have evolved and become accepted into mainstream contemporary music in France and elsewhere. (If you're interested check out for some great clips).

I don't understand jazz (though I suspect my son and sister-in-law do) but I realise the importance of the Calvi Jazz Festival in the Island's calendar. However, you have a problem finding sensible information about this event on Google, and the last time I asked them, the Corsican Tourist Board didn't know the dates - hopefully this has now changed. Thanks to a couple of people who have taken the trouble to inform the discussion group Corsica Lista ( I can now reveal that the date of the Festival in 2006 is 13th-18th June. It would be great if the organisers could keep their website going all year so that jazz-loving tourists don't have to do lots of research before they book their flights.

Hello, as you can see this is my first post here.
In first steps it's really good if someone supports you, so hope to meet friendly and helpful people here. Let me know if I can help you.
Thanks in advance and good luck! :)
