Together with musicians from Germany, German-speaking countries, many others from Europe and all over the world, we want to show how diverse, creative, inspiring and entrancing jazz music can be. So we celebrate the day that is "our'" day: International Jazz Day together with the whole world.

In these times of Covid-19 isolation, it is more important than ever to show in virtual space how vibrant, transcending borders, real, experiential and wonderful our culture, music and society is. We are jazz!

Here we inform you with touching documentaries about musicians and bands that inspire us and accompany us with their music. Musicians who were just about to play at festivals and concerts that we were so looking forward to. All concerts canceled, and herewith we want to share with the whole world the musical range and our enthusiasm for the artists we have chosen this year.

About International Jazz Day

International Jazz Day is the culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month, which brings public attention to jazz and its extraordinary heritage in April

In November 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role in integrating people in all parts of the world. International Jazz Day will be led by UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay and legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, who serves as UNESCO Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue and Chair of the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz. The Institute is the leading nonprofit organization charged with planning, promoting and producing this annual celebration.

International Jazz Day brings together communities, schools, artists, historians, scholars and jazz enthusiasts around the world to celebrate and learn more about jazz and its roots, future and impact, raise awareness of the need for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding, and strengthen international cooperation and communication. Each year on April 30, this international art form is recognized for promoting peace, dialogue among cultures, diversity and respect for human rights and dignity, eliminating discrimination, promoting freedom of expression, promoting gender equality, and empowering youth to implement social change.

International Jazz Day is the culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month, which focuses public attention on jazz and its extraordinary heritage during the month of April. In December 2012, the United Nations General Assembly officially welcomed the decision of the UNESCO General Conference to proclaim April 30 as International Jazz Day.
