Celebrate International Jazz Day with these virtual events

UNESCO International Jazz Day falls on 30th April and celebrates jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people from all around the world. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the annual International Jazz Day celebrations will transit to a virtual format for this year.

The marquee Global Concert, which begins at 3:00 p.m. ET on jazzday.com, will feature streamed performances from bassist Marcus Miller (U.S.), pianist Lang Lang (China), saxophonist Igor Butman (Russia), vocalist Youn Sun Nah (South Korea), and bassist Alune Wade (Senegal), among other worldwide leaders in the genre.

A free series of educational master classes and children’s activities in six languages conducted by renowned musicians will be streamed in the hours leading up to the concert. The pre-concert program will also include a panel discussion on the importance of art and the international community during the public health crisis, hosted by NPR Music and WBGO’s Nate Chinen and featuring performer Marcus Miller and South African vocalist Sibongile Khumalo.

 

Other than the above virtual event, Clash magazine will team up alongside Brownswood Recordings for a special International Jazz Day broadcast. Broadcasting over Insta Live and Facebook Live, we’ll be able to make stellar DJ sets against unique performances from the cream of the label’s talent.

Joe Armon-Jones will kick off the broadcast and he’s one of the MVPs within London’s underground jazz community – a member of Ezra Collective and a noted composer under his own name, he’s collaborated with Nubya Garcia, Maxwell Owin, and more. Ruby Savage follows with a impeccably tailored DJ set, leading into a full concert from the explosive talent that is Skinny Pelembe. Forest Law has promised something special – building a beat from scratch, this entirely improvised performance will be a completely unique, one off event.

Finally, SAY Award winner and all-round beat virtuoso Auntie Flo will finish the event, with a special party vibes DJ set.
