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.
"One of the reasons I believe in jazz is that the oneness of man can come through the rhythm of your heart. It's the same anyplace in the world, that heartbeat. It's the first thing you hear when you're born - or before you're born - and it's the last thing you hear." - Dave Brubeck
