Are you ready for a spectacular performance and celebration! Well, today is the day! You get to take the time to listen to the sweet sound of Jazz as we celebrate International Jazz Day!
This event highlights a remarkable meeting of jazz masters from all over the world, to give an unforgettable performance. Jazz Day brings together countries, communities, artists, historians and of course all the jazz enthusiasts. Why? This is to celebrate and raise awareness about Jazz and it’s roots.
As legendary Herbie Hancock said “Jazz is really about the human experience. It’s about the ability of human beings to take the worst of circumstances and struggles and turn it into something creative and constructive. That’s something that’s built into the fibre of every human being. I think that’s why people can respond to it. They feel the freedom in it. And the attributes of jazz are also admirable. It's about dialogue. It’s about sharing. And teamwork. It’s at the moment and it’s nonjudgmental”. Hence, this is where Jazz day comes in. This special music is known for encouraging peace, diversity, respect, freedom of expression and more!
In the spirit of International Jazz Day, each year All-Star Global Concert takes place in a landmark venue. With rich historical significance both to the Hosting City and the Hosting Nation. This year Jazz Day will be launched in Australia. It will also be celebrated in more than 190 different countries. More than two dozen world-renowned artists come together for an extraordinary Event.
