WE LOVE JAZZ SG CELEBRATES

INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY (IJD) 2019
at Kult Kafe, Singapore



WOW! It’s that time of the year again!

We are celebrating UNESCO's International Jazz Day 2019 at our favourite hang-out, Kult Kafe! We have a series of exciting jazz/improvisation-related activities lined up for this special day. Designed to be casual hang-out, this unforgettable evening will be packed with inspiration and loads of fun. Come join us, and oh, we also need your participation. Just read on!

Aligned with IJD's mission, we hope this event brings together everyone who is related to jazz - practitioners, schools, artists, historians, academics, jazz & improvisation enthusiasts and music lovers regardless of who you are, to learn about jazz and its roots, as well as its future and impact. Our version IJD aims to foster intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding among communities, and reinforce international cooperation and communication - in short, it's a 'HANG'!

*This is a non-profitable event. All proceeds will be used to cover event overheads and further WLJ’s cause/ mission of developing Singapore’s jazz scene and community”

◾️THE JAM SESSION (7pm -10PM)

“Jam sessions serve as the jazz equivalent of networking events.”

In the 2012 Jazz Times article, well known Jazz journalist Aidan Levy emphasized that and the same in Singapore, it is the most popular ways for the jazz musicians to grow and nurture their ecosystem. However, jam session can be intimidating and exclusive - so we have prepared 2 contrasting house bands especially for this special celebration. Come one and all. You can join, listen and watch - it's your choice.


HOUSEBAND #1 (19:00-20:20) JUNGLE JAM by Ayaschool X The Warriors
feat. Aya Sekine (keys) Tim De Cotta (bass/vocal) Redwan Hamzah (guitar) Anson Koh (drums)

Well know Japanese jazz pianist/improvisor Aya Sekine will collaborate with music heroes of our time for an adventurous open jam session. Anyone is welcome to make music with these talented bunch, and be brave as there will be no mistake, just music.


HOUSE BAND #2 (20:40-22:00) WLJ KULT JAZZ JAM
by Pontipong 'Te' Soothipong (sax) & Namie Rasman (vo)
with Andrew Lim (gtr), Eugene Chew (bass) Darryl Ervin (dr)

"If you sing or play, come join us, have fun, make music and don’t be shy!" To conclude WLJ IJD2019, up and coming jazz chanteuse Namie Rasman & highly motivated saxophonist Tete will proudly present the WLJ Kult Jazz Jam Session featuring experienced jazz men Andrew Lim (gtr), Eugene Chew (bass) and Darryl Ervin (dr) as the house musicians.

ABOUT INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY :
International Jazz Day is the culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month in the states, which draws public attention to jazz and its extraordinary heritage throughout April. In December 2012, the United Nation General Assembly formally welcomed the decision by the UNESCO General Conference to proclaim April 30 as International Jazz Day. The United Nations and UNESCO now both recognise International Jazz Day on their official calendars.
