It is worth noting that at the same time, from August 28 to August 30, the village of Koktebel in Crimea will host the festival Koktebel Jazz Party of Dmitry Kiselyov, Joinfo.ua reports.
Because of this, and there was a kind of a confusion with the German band De Phazz, the performance of which is expected in Odessa. Mysteriously the band is also included in the program of the Russian festival.
Journalists clarified this information in the press service of the Russian Festival Koktebel Jazz Party, which confirmed the participation of De Phazz.
However, it is known that the German musicians of the band De Phazz intend to perform in the final of the Odessa Festival. This was stated by Sasha Erchenko, the art director of Koktebel Jazz Festival.
“The rumors that the band De Phazz is going to attend the festival in Crimea were unfounded, and therefore on the closing day of the festival, on August 30, Karl Frierson, the resident of Koktebel Jazz Festival, will be with us again. His heart is with Ukraine, his heart is with us!” she said.
The initiators of Koktebel Jazz Festival suggest that Russian journalist Dmitry Kiselyov is holding the festival in the same period deliberately. It is possible that the program of the Russian project included the name of the band De Phazz for the same purpose.
