Turkey – “Night of Ramadan” (Istanbul, July 10, 2015)


This evening, for the second consecutive year, the Palais de France in Istanbul will host a “Night of Ramadan” with an Iftar, the meal that breaks the fast, followed by a concert that will be part of the Jazz in Ramadan festival.

Participants in this Iftar – politicians, economic and cultural actors, journalists – will join other viewers for a concert whose overarching theme is brotherhood. Performers include André Manoukian and his quartet, Turkish musicians of the Roma tradition, and the great percussionist Okay Temiz. This Jazz in Ramadan concert will also be presented at the French Embassy in Ankara on the evening of July 11.
