Celebrate All That Jazz on April 30th!
Despite being considered as one of the most popular music genres to exist, many people don’t exactly know what makes songs jazz in form or how jazz music is different from other genres. Sometimes, jazz gets mistaken for the blues (which is another music genre) especially by people who were still not around when the genre was at its peak.
In November 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization proclaimed April 30 as International Jazz Day. It’s a day dedicated to raising awareness about what jazz music is all about and how it can be used to promote peace, dialogue among cultures, diversity, freedom of expression, and respect for human rights and human dignity. Jazz can also be used to eradicate discrimination, foster gender equality, and reinforce the role of youth for social change.
