Acknowledging the presence and influence of Jazz and World Music genres on the Cypriot contemporary music creation, the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports and Youth, the Cyprus Music Information Centre and the Rialto Theatre organized in 2014 the 1st Jazz and World Music Showcase. Following five successful editions, the 6th Cyprus Jazz & World Music Showcase, presents eight different bands and more than forty artists, showing a global picture of the contemporary Cypriot music creation.

Friends of jazz and world music will have this year, the opportunity to listen to the original music of Cypriot artists, which is influenced by jazz and world music from various countries and regions such as Cyprus, Greece, the Balkans, the Middle East and more.

Alongside to the festival's main program a series of side events are organized, such as workshops and discussions with foreign guests, emphasis is given by the organisation on informing and educating the artists. An innovation to this year's event is the organisation of three Jam Sessions at Art Studio 55.
