International Jazz Day and NZ Music Month


International Jazz Day 2022


Did you know that 30 April was designated as International Jazz Day by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)? UNESCO saw the significance of jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe and this year International Jazz Day is chaired and led by UNESCO Director, General Audrey Azoulay, and legendary jazz pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock.

2022 All-Star Global Concert

This year, the 2022 All-Star Global Concert will be hosted at UN General Assembly Hall at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The concert seeks to make a powerful statement in support of peace, healing and unity through a diverse series of performances by leading jazz artists from around the globe.

Jazz during NZ Music Month

Jazz is making a comeback in 2022. Given that it is a form of music that is best heard live, do look out for Kiwi jazz musicians performing in gigs around Aotearoa this May during NZ Music Month.

Check out your local jazz gigs on Eventfinda.

Our staff have been working quietly behind the scenes to organise our curated jazz playlist.  From Bossa Nova to Jazz Fusion, we have jazz soundtracks to cater to your needs.

Show your support this NZ Music Month as part of our New Zealand Played campaign. Mix your usual jazz playlist with upcoming Kiwi jazz musicians. If you can’t find the Kiwi jazz musician you are after, talk to us.
