International Jazz Day Celebration with host Michael Mwenso

In honor of International Jazz Day, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem (NJMH) will illuminate the truly global roots of jazz with an international jam session. Hosted by vocalist and man-about-town, Michael Mwenso, and curated by NJMH artistic director-at-large, Jonathan Batiste, this evening will epitomize the universal language that is jazz. Special guests include Kavita Shah, a young, multi-lingual Indian singer who has collaborated with Lionel Loueke and Steve Wilson, Oran Etkin, the reeds virtuoso known for his Israeli-West African-New Orleans hybrid sound, and Amir El Saffar, the Iraqi-American trumpeter revolutionizing the sound of jazz with Middle Eastern maqam and microtonal influences. When Jonathan Batiste is involved you never know who else will show up or what to expect and we hope you’ll join us to find out!
