Event Details

International Jazz Day Celebration - Curated by Jonathan Batiste with host Michael Mwenso - In honor of International Jazz Day, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem (NJMH) will illuminate the truly global roots of jazz with an international jam session. Hosted by vocalist and man-about-town, Michael Mwenso, and curated by NJMH artistic director-at-large, Jonathan Batiste, this evening will epitomize the universal language that is jazz. Special guests include Kavita Shah, a young, multi-lingual Indian singer who has collaborated with Lionel Loueke and Steve Wilson, Oran Etkin, the reeds virtuoso known for his Israeli-West African-New Orleans hybrid sound, Amir El Saffar, the Iraqi-American trumpeter revolutionizing the sound of jazz with Middle Eastern maqam and microtonal influences, and rising star singer Cecile McLorin-Salvant! When Jonathan Batiste is involved you never know who else will show up or what to expect and we hope you’ll join us to find out!
