Celebrate International Jazz Day
with our Curated Playlists!
As jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald said, “Music is the universal language… it brings people together.” It certainly does and although we had to cancel our International Jazz Day events due to the pandemic, we are continuing to create connections through jazz. In fact, you can still enjoy the 10th Anniversary of this UNESCO heritage celebration of music, community, culture, and art with us!
Check out our below playlists, which highlight the rich heritage of jazz music. These “Jazz at Home” compilations are curated by Teerada, our graphic designer who’s also passionate about jazz. Teerada has arranged these three playlists to suit your different moods. Tune in with us.
