Havana, Cuba - Following thousands of events taking place in over 190 countries, International Jazz Day 2017 culminated in a concert streamed worldwide from Havana’s historic Gran Teatro de La Habana Alicia Alonso. As the International Jazz Day 2017 Global Host City, the musically vibrant city of Havana also presented a wide range of concerts and education programs.

Established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in coordination with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, International Jazz Day is recognized on the official calendars of UNESCO and the United Nations. Each year, on April 30, International Jazz Day highlights the role of jazz in promoting freedom, creativity and intercultural dialogue, and uniting people from all corners of the globe. Toyota served as Lead Partner of International Jazz Day 2017.

The Global Concert included an all-star group of musicians from Cuba and around the world performing “Cuba Bop” and “Manteca”. Cuban trumpet virtuoso Julio Padron played Freddie Hubbard’s composition, while the acclaimed vocalist Cassandra Wilson performed her composition “You Move Me”.
