Today I touch on a sensitive subject.
What is jazz? it seems to be such a complicated question.
For me, Jazz is an art form able to influence and embrace so many different styles because at its core it's about authentic expression, communication, freedom, It's a glue that can unite different points of view.
Jazz is at its best when is more than just a language with rules and truly becomes a voice in itself.
Today´s show is a bit out of our norm, is about diversity and possibilities.
I play an International line-up of artists that I love that make it a mission to spread their cultural
heritage using Jazz as one of their ways of expression.
They have been featured in Jazz magazines, performed in the most important jazz festivals around the world but some of them don´t even consider themself's Jazz artists.
Like John Coltrane once said - "My music is the spiritual expression of what I am: my faith, my knowledge, my being."
Enjoy music from Carmen Souza, Hernani Almeida, Oum, Mandisi Dyantyis, Ibrahim Maalouf, Dhafer Youssef, Buika, Avishai Cohen, Matt Carmichael,
