    Celebrating the 6th International Jazz Day
    Santo Domingo, March 22, 2017

    In November 2011 the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day with the intention of promoting Jazz, its role in unifying people from every corner of the world, promoting peace and cultural exchange, diversity and the respect for human rights and human dignity, the eradication of discrimination, promoting free speech and expression, and supporting gender equality, and reinforcing the role of young people in prompting social change.

    The day’s celebratory activities will be lead by Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO, and by legendary pianist Herbie Hancock, UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for the promotion of Intercultural Dialogue and president of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. “International Jazz Day is a way to support and foster the unifying power of music through celebrations and activities”, declared Hancock.

    Each year a city is chosen to serve as the host for the event. At the 2016 event in Washington, D.C. activities included a series of jazz performances, community service projects, and educational programs in schools, libraries, hospitals, community centers and art centers throughout the city. The All-Star Global Concert was held on the night of April 30 with dozens of outstanding Jazz performances by world renowned artists. At the time of writing UNESCO has not announced the hosting city for this year.

    Since 2012 the Dominican Republic has celebrated this festival and will be one of the 190 countries from around the world which will celebrate jazz through thousands of performances and programs. Two very special presentations will take place on Friday April 21 and Friday April 28 at the well-known Fiesta Sunset Jazz

    The Department of Cultural Tourism of the Ministry of Tourism, Fiesta Hotel and Jazz en Dominicana, have united to celebrate Jazz with UNESCO, the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz and International Jazz Day. As in the past five years, recognition will be given to the individuals who have supported Jazz in our country.
