In 2011, UNESCO proclaimed 30 April as "International Jazz Day". UNESCO's aim was "to give voice to the message of dialogue and freedom, so the day was created in recognition that jazz brings people together to reinforce respect for the shared values, universal messages of peace, freedom and solidarity that jazz conveys."
The celebration of the 1st International Jazz Day happened in2012. Now in 30 April let's celebrate the 11th year
"Jazz is not just music, it is a way of life, it is a way of being, a way of thinking".
Hoping that teachers and students read me about International Jazz Day along these 11 years and played and heard some good jazz music.
Don't forget the Centenary of Toots Thielemans, an incredible musician often honored as the best jazz-harmonica-player in the world.
