New Delhi, Sep 19 (PTI) The national capital is set to witness a convergence of top Jazz artistes from all over the world at 7th Delhi International Jazz Festival starting from September 23.

Organised by Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), the three-day music festival will be held at Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri here.

The Jazz festival will bring together artistes from India and countries like France, Israel, Korea, Mexico, Spain, Taiwan, and South Africa.

The festival will see performances by seven international and three Indian Jazz groups.

"Along with the famous bands, there is an opportunity to hear popular band groups from India as well. Organised since 2011 by ICCR, this festival is a treat for Jazz lovers in India.

"ICCR believes that music can play a key role in engaging in creative dialogue with other nations. Festivals like these help us in understanding cultures of other countries and also gives the opportunity to our own people to interact with world class performers," Riva Ganguly Das, director general of ICCR, said.

Originating in the late 19th century in the African- American communities, Jazz genre gained popularity across regions and soon out to the world.

"ICCR played an important role in spreading the genre within Indian boundaries by holding international Jazz festival for past seven years. The festival organised by ICCR experienced great appreciation and overwhelming responses from the audiences of Delhi and other parts of India," the organisers said.

The festival will come to an end on September 25.
