Every year on April 30 the International Jazz Day is remembered throughout the world. The day was declared an International Day by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in 2011 and the first day was celebrated on April 30, 2012. The aim was to highlight Jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. The idea came from UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador and Jazz pianist Herbie Jeffrey Hancock who also chairs the Jazz day along with the UNESCO Director-General.



International Jazz Day ushers together communities, artists, schools, historians, academics, and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to learn and celebrate about jazz and its roots. Moreover, it raises awareness of the need for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding and reinforces international cooperation and communication. Every year this international art form is appreciated for promoting peace, dialogue among cultures, diversity, and respect for human rights and human dignity. It also reduces the level of discrimination; promoting freedom of expression; fostering gender equality; and reinforcing the role of youth in enacting social change.



To add up, the United Nations and UNESCO now both recognize International Jazz Day on their official calendars. The organizers and jazz lovers from around the world recorded hundreds of performances, greetings and other special Jazz Day tributes as a collective expression of solidarity.
