UCT Big Band joins the global jazz community in commemorating International Jazz Day which falls on 30 April, as declared by UNESCO. The premise of International Jazz Day is to accentuate the role of jazz music in international diplomacy, diversity, freedom of expression, tolerance and unity. UCT Big Band will perform repertoire that demonstrates its fierce commitment to diversity, equality and cultural pride. The concert features an exciting mix of music from American big band, Brazilian bossa nova, contemporary jazz and music from some of South Africa’s finest composers: Caiphus Semenya, Ebrahim Khalil Shihab and Tutu Puoane.
