Russian President’s greetings to participants and guests of Koktebel Jazz Party 2017

Founder address

Dmitry Kiselev
Crimea held its first Koktebel Jazz Festival in 2003. I was lucky to be its cofounder together with my Ukrainian friends Lilya Mlinarich, Vladimir Solyanik and Kirill Vyshinsky. Musicians and us, we all lived in tents and enjoyed fantastic jam sessions at the foot of the Kara Dag Mountain after the main program was over.
Since then, jazz has rocked Koktebel every fall. I am glad to welcome all the fans of its magic to Koktebel Jazz Party this year.
Welcome to the 15th jazz season in Koktebel!
