“Jazz washes away the dust of everyday life”, said jazz legend Art Blakey. Although jazz is a difficult music genre to describe, it is also very recognizable. First developed around the 1920’s, this rich and diverse music genre has influenced and continues to influence the world today. Therefore on this day International Jazz Day is celebrated. A day to raise awareness to the virtues of jazz as an educational tool, a force for peace, unity and dialogue and enhanced cooperation among people.
