The second edition of The Fringe Youth Jazz Ensemble is part of the Malta Jazz Festival initiative to create networks and encourage collaborations between the Maltese and the international jazz scene. Conceived by Sandro Zerafa and supported by Valletta 2018, this is the creation of a medium-sized jazz ensemble featuring the best of young talent from Malta (including past winners of the Malta Jazz Contest), who this year will perform with young talent from France. 
This project will be in collaboration with the renowned EDIM Music School in Paris. The ensemble will work on a repertoire which will be presented for the first time at the festival and at a later date in Paris. The ensemble will be coached and directed by arranger Vincent Jacqz, head of the jazz department at the EDIM.
