The U.S. Embassy in Angola distributed information about the day and the importance of jazz among Angolan citizens, Embassy staff and the world, posting a message on its official Facebook page and displaying posters and other informational material in their “American Spaces” facilities.
"Jazz is indefinable. To understand jazz, you need to merge yourself with its pulse and lose yourself to its sounds and let it flood your soul. It is the most democratic form of music: it has taken the sounds, movements and cadences of whatever form of music from whichever countries it travelled to." - Shankar Mahadevan
