Dominican Republic Women in Jazz in the Dominican Republic – Book Release & Concert
A las 7:00pm del viernes 23 de abril Fernando Rodríguez de Mondesert, en medio de un conversatorio, lanzará su libro Mujeres en el Jazz .. en Dominicana, su segundo titulo, publicado por la Ukiyoto Publishing Co., siendo el primero como premio por haber sido uno de los ganadores del Global Blog Awards 2019.
La obra, en Español e Inglés, pretende resaltar la contribución de las mujeres a nuestro jazz. Es un homenaje, una oportunidad para conocer algunas de las propuestas contemporáneas de mujeres que han entregado sus talentos, su música; que han compartido sus almas y corazones con el público; que han trillado y abierto camino a otras que les han seguido.
Las mujeres siempre han sido una parte importante del jazz, aunque a menudo sus logros no han tenido el mismo reconocimiento que el de sus colegas masculinos. Ellas, han contribuido enormemente en todos los estilos y en todas las épocas de la historia del jazz. Igualmente ha ocurrido y sigue ocurriendo en la República Dominicana, razón por esta obra: ¨Mujeres en el jazz …en Dominicana¨! Libro que abre una ventana a las mujeres que han sido, son y serán parte de la escena del jazz en el país!
A las 9:00pm el festejo continúa con la presentación del Fiesta Sunset Jazz Vocal Jam 2021. Si los Jam sessions son especiales y muy esperados tanto los músicos como el público para experimentar estas descargas – no se imaginan cuan grandes y vivos son los Vocal Jams. He aquí uno muy especial. Nuestro trío base a cargo de Jordi Masalles servirá de plataforma para los despegues de unas muy talentosas vocalistas. La magia del Jazz…Se da en su máxima expresión en los jammeos…vayan, y … que no se lo cuenten.
###
At 7:00 pm on Friday, April 23, Fernando Rodríguez de Mondesert will release his book Jazz en Dominicana: The Interviews 2019, product of the award received from Ukiyoto Publishing Co. for having been second finalist of the Global Blog awards Awards 2019.
The publication, in Spanish and English, is a tribute to the contribution of women to jazz in our country, it has been an opportunity to learn about some of the contemporary proposals in this genre from women who have given their talents and music; have shared their souls and hearts with audiences; have trodden and paved the way for those who are to follow them.
Women have always been an important part of jazz, although their achievements have often not received the same recognition as that of their male colleagues. They, have contributed enormously in all styles and in all eras of jazz history. The same has happened and continues to happen in the Dominican Republic, reason for this title: ¨ Women in Jazz… in the Dominican Republic¨!. Book which looks into the women that have been, are and will be a part of the jazz scene in the country!
And at 9:00 pm, the celebration continues with the presentation of the Fiesta Sunset Jazz Vocal Jam 2021. If Jam sessions are special and highly anticipated by both musicians and the public to experience these get down sessions – you cannot imagine how big and alive Vocal Jams are. Here’s a very special one. Our base trio led by Jordi Masalles will serve as a platform for the takeoffs of some very talented female vocalists. The magic of Jazz … It occurs at its best in jams … and get the scoop .. live!

Germany YogaLoveJazz Virtual

Still in organizing the project the idea it´s born to to emphasise the connection between the two passions of yoga and jazz, highlighting the forces generated by one hour of yoga and one hour of listening to jazz. The combination of the two opens up frontiers in the heart and soul and leads us to a healthy inner world, which is expressed in the realisation of an equally healthy outer world… Jazz represents music where each musician is closely connected in a domino cascade with the sound of the others, each time creating a different version of the same music, it sustains a unique and profound rhythm that opens sound barriers for the listener. Jazz tempos caress the deepest emotions, supporting the performer, the sound, the listening…
