18 Fernandes CharlesJazzified by Fernandes Charles

The artwork Jazzified is an abstract expression of the motion and feel of Jazz music which touches the mind, body and the soul. The rich tones overlapping each other in the composition depict the blending and balance of the complex rhythms of Jazz which distinguishes it from other musical genres.

This week we celebrate the  International Day of Jazz. The Day is intended to raise awareness in the international community of the intrinsic worth of jazz as an educational tool, and a force for peace, unity, dialogue and enhanced cooperation among people. The promotion of jazz music presents the opportunity to foster greater appreciation, not only for the music but also for the contribution it can make in +building more inclusive societies.

International Jazz Day brings together communities, schools, artists, historians, academics, and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate and learn about jazz and its roots, future and impact.
