April and jazz have arrived. We have prepared “Jazz Appreciation Month in Montenegro” (JAM) very carefully; different programs and contents are here to support the world celebration of jazz music and culture in order to promote jazz and motivate young generations in our country to take active part in it. This year this event will be lasting throughout the whole month of April from 1st April – 30th April.
As of the establishment of this event until today all programs including educational seminars and workshops are free of charge for the public and they are aimed to acquaint and include the youth as well as the wider audience in the process of teaching and creating jazz and ultimately to connect with top notch jazz teachers, performers and program contents such as a cycle of films, exhibitions, presentations, poetic and other performances and productions and to make the access to this new artistic genre of the XX century easier. In the end the aim is to attract Montenegrin music community and improve knowledge and broaden the views of jazz and its numerous styles that have been blooming for over a century of its existence all over the world. The initial experiences acquired in this field are very important for the future of contemporary Montenegro.
“Jazz Appreciation Month in Montenegro 2012” is held this year under the general motto “Jazz Crossing Borders and Cultures” and is composed of several mutually connected wholes: educational workshops, jazz concerts, literary presentations, film serials and exhibitions.
