About the project

Who We Are?

Jazz Swing Manouche (JSM) Radio is an independently programmed internet radio for over 10 years, and it is based in France, Turkey and Germany.

JSM Radio features an eclectic mix of jazz and blues with various origins. The main aim is to introduce news talents outside of the mainstream and to provide an outlet for independent musicians.

JSM Radio has previously hosted live interviews with musicians such as Timuçin Şahin, lecturer in jazz history from New York University and a jazz guitar player; Django Lassie, a gipsy jazz band from Berlin; Prita Grealy, an acoustic finger picking guitar player and beat boxing from Australia; Ceyda Köybaşıoğlu, a Turkish voice and bass; Frank Salis, a hammond organ jazz player and many more.

Since several years we broadcast our interviews from Germany (Halle), as well as Lyon, Paris, Istanbul by involving into jazz festivals, and jazz clubs.

This program is designed to introduce emerging jazz musicians from different countries with an hour of interview during our trip around the world.
