UNESCO proclaimed 30 April as the International Jazz Day in 2011, upon a proposal made by legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, who is also a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue. The Day aims to recognize the power of jazz music to promote peace, dialogue, and mutual understanding, and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. This year the global celebration will take place in Melbourne, Australia and International Jazz Day will be celebrated in more than 190 countries around the world.
“Jazz has its roots in the struggle for freedom and resistance against oppression. This music, with its various styles, has been embraced and integrated into countless cultures, morphing into new forms of expression, infinitely resonating with the diversity of song and sound across the globe”, says UNESCO Director-General, Audrey Azoulay in her message on the occasion of International Jazz Day 2019.
The Piano Man first location in New Delhi has hosted almost 1,400 concerts in the three and a half years since its inception, including some of the finest musicians from all over the world. The opening of a second Piano Man location in Gurgaon marks the beginning of a new journey for the brand and for its mission.
“Sing us a song, you’re the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us feelin’ alright”
