What is International Jazz Day?

International Jazz Day (IJD) is a worldwide celebration of jazz music sponsored by the United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organization (UNESCO) that takes place annually on April 30th. This will be the ninth year IJD has been observed in more than 190 counties around the globe. Dedicated volunteers across the world have created thousands of activities, programs and community service initiatives that celebrate “the virtues of Jazz Music “as an educational tool, force for peace, instrument for intercultural dialogue and global cooperation. IJD seeks to bring together communities to celebrate and learn about the origin, history and continued development of jazz music.

International Jazz Day is under the direction of Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO, and legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, who serves as UNESCO Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue, and chairman of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz.
