Celebrate International Jazz Day With 20+ Brilliant Musicians In Mumbai

Posted at April 29th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in Entertainment, News

In November 2011, UNESCO officially designated April 30th as International Jazz Day in order to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. International Jazz Day is chaired and led by Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director General, and legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock. The Institute is the lead non-profit organization charged with planning, promoting, and producing this annual celebration.

In 2016, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted the International Jazz Day 2016 All-Star Global Concert from the White House, with artists performing throughout the White House and on the South Lawn. In 2016, people in 195 countries organized more than 900 events on April 30th.

In Mumbai, through the efforts of Louiz Banks, International Jazz Day has been celebrated since the last four years. This year being its fifth edition, the event will feature over 20 artistes in a span of three hours. There will be a mix of jazz genres, from jazz standards to jazz fusion, featuring some of the finest musicians and singers in the country.
