International Jazz Day History
International Jazz Day seeks to celebrate jazz music and its contribution to education, peace, unity, dialogue, and cooperation. Jazz is a form of music that was started in African American communities in the late 1800s and early 1900s in New Orleans, Louisiana. Since then, it has grown and spread around the world, influencing new genres or sub-genres. A few examples include the blues, ragtime, classical, and spiritual.
International Jazz Day was established in 2011 by UNESCO to highlight the power of jazz in uniting people from all over the world. It is celebrated annually on April 30th.
