City: Rimini

04/30
Alessandro Bolsieri - sax Luca Magnoni – piano Filippo Cassaleni – doublebass Enrico Ro – drum La musica ha dimostrato attraverso le varie epoche di essere un potente strumento di comunicazione. Come è noto, il Jazz è una forma di musica nata, all’inizio del 900, dall’incontro tra la cultura africana e quella europea, propagatasi inizialmente nel sud degli Stati Uniti per poi diffondersi in tutto il mondo, prendendo il meglio dalle varie nazioni e arricchendosi attraverso la fusione delle diverse culture. Oggi è una forma d’arte internazionale che parla tante lingue: è un mezzo di comunicazione che trascende le differenze di razza, religione, etnia o nazionalità. Appartiene al mondo ed è un formidabile strumento di dialogo interculturale, di unificazione e di coesistenza pacifica. È per questo motivo che l’UNESCO ha deciso di celebrare il 30 aprile di ogni anno la “Giornata Internazionale del Jazz” in tutto il mondo.
