International Jazz Day

International Jazz Day

International Jazz Day, initiated by UNESCO, is sponsored this year by Herbie Hancock and coordinated by the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. The Institut Français in Beijing will celebrate with a film showing, ‘Sur les routes du jazz’, and a conference, followed by a soirée in the Hot Club.

France is often recognised as one of the hot spots for Jazz creation, since the first ragtime introduced by the American army in France during the First World War, with French heritage in Josephine Baker or Django Reinhardt, right up to the Festival of Marciac which attracts the biggest names every year to the South of France.
