NEW YORK - Aug. 16, 2019 - PRLog -- Bodrum and Rhodes are only 60 miles (96 kilometers) apart, the journey by ferry boat takes about two and a half hours. Both have an active and international yachting culture and attract tourists from all over the world.

Ozlem Oktar Varoglu , the Founder, and Tugce Alpaslan, the Director of the Ankara and Bodrum Jazz Festivals, reached out to Dimitrios Vassilakis Founder and Artistic Director of the Rhodes International Jazz Festival to work together in bringing Greek jazz musicians to perform in Turkey and Turkish jazz musicians to perform in Greece.

Jazz is a truly an international language and for musicians from one country to perform in a neighboring country reinforces the premise that we have much in common. This collaboration can expand the horizons of musicians in both countries promote them internationally and engage in educational activities, open discussions and forums.

The Rhodes International Jazz Festival will take place from August 28th through August 30th, performances will take place in the courtyard of the Palace of the Knights and the Moat outside the medieval city, as well as other outdoor locations.

Opening the festival on August 28th is the Turkish group Ayhan  Sicimoglu & Latin All Stars with special guest
