#DemocracyinJazz and #FreedominJazz is the theme of the Festival.
Chair of Jazz Society of Turkey, and Festival Curator Özlem Oktar Varoğlu said; “We think that jazz is a democratic form of art. Jazz musicians contribute to the music on the stage, and they listen to each other, open a space for each other and ensure that they can make their voices heard equally. Also, now the world is showing us a new definition of #freedom, as we all understand the meaning of it clearer than ever. We hope to go back to live concerts soon but until then please enjoy our online music festival!”
The opening concert, organized in cooperation with UNESCO and Herbie Hancock Jazz Institution, is on the World Jazz Day on April 30th, 2020. Total number of 20 events will take place during the Festival and all events will be broadcasted online with the highest quality audio and video. Some of the concerts will be streamed live.
