France -- Festival (and stereotypes?)


Affiche du IXème Festival JazznKlezmer
Poster for Jazz 'n' Klezmer festival

I've just posted a link to the 9th edition of the Jazz 'n' Klezmer festival in Paris, which takes place Nov. 21-Dec. 13, with some big names taking part -- David Krakauer, Balkan Beat Box, etc.

What I find interesting are the iconic stereotypes used in the poster (see above) -- a sexy Black woman to symbolize jazz and a (sort of sexy) beardless Hasid to symbolize klezmer.....

  1. The poster is fascinating with an extremely creative edge.
