The Montreux Jazz Festival has launched the Fairmont World Tour 2020, in partnership with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.

From 29 January – 7 March two soul artists, Jalen N’Gonda and Bobby Bazini, will perform in 13 hotel destinations around the world.

Jalen N’Gonda and Bobby Bazini will offer Fairmont guests an experience ‘in the spirit of the Festival’. These two songwriters won over audiences and professionals alike during their concert at the 53rd Montreux Jazz Festival.

Jalen N’Gonda, winner of the Montreux Jazz Talent Awards in 2018, embarked in the fall of the same year for a tour of four of the European hotels in the Fairmont group. This year, from January 29 to February 12 , he will take his warm and nuanced soul songs to six destinations in Brazil and the United States.

From February 22 to March 5 , Canadian musician with blues and rock influences Bobby Bazini will hit five Fairmont destinations in Europe and Asia.

To conclude this tour, Bobby Bazini and Jalen N’Gonda will meet on March 7 at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace for an evening of concerts under the sign of the meeting.
