International Jazz Day in
Days to go:
International Jazz Day is a global event that celebrates the historical, cultural, and educational impact of jazz music. Created by UNESCO, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, it seeks to raise awareness about jazz as an educational tool, as a force for peace, unity and dialogue among people, and as a medium of improvisation and innovation. It acknowledges the contribution of this genre to music culture and also promotes fresh forms of creative expressions globally.
The advent of this day occurred in November 2011, under the auspices of UNESCO and in consultation with the legendary jazz musician Herbie Hancock. India has deep roots associated with jazz primarily owing to the influence of the British colonial period and continued interactions with musically inclined communities worldwide. Indian jazz has evolved in its distinctive style blending traditional Indian classical music with the free-form improvisation of jazz, creating an exciting fusion that deeply reflects Indian culture and heritage.
India celebrates International Jazz Day with various jazz performances, music festivals, and educational programs. Music venues, cultural centers, and educational institutions across the country host concerts featuring both international and local jazz musicians. Musicians, students, and jazz enthusiasts come together to attend workshops, demonstrations, and discussions, enriching the appreciation of jazz in India. The event is celebrated annually on April 30, binding Indian jazz lovers with the global community in celebrating the art form's unique ability to foster mutual understanding and cultural cooperation.
