30 APRIL 2018

Jazz is recognized as “a means to develop and increase intercultural exchanges and understanding between cultures for the purpose of mutual comprehension and tolerance.”

For the sixth year, the Founders of the KL International Jazz & Arts Festival are celebrating the International Jazz Day with a Concert & Forum at University Malaya.

Jazz musicians from Kuala Lumpur with their counterparts from Bangkok, New Zealand, England and Tanzania will perform a tribute concert to the Jazz Masters : such as Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus, Bobby Timmons, The Crusaders, John McLaughlin and many others to promote  this great American art form which is now a global phenomenon.

The International Jazz Day is celebrated by people in 190 countries around the world on 30th April.

“Like democracy itself, jazz has structure, but within it you can say almost anything.”

– Susan Rice, U.S. National Security Advisor
