Set your calendar for Hybrid Jazz. Shambhu will celebrate International Jazz Day on April 30th with an appearance on "Hybrid Jazz with Trish Hennessey" to discuss his new album "Lilac Skies." Showtime is 1 pm. Shambhu appears at 2 pm.
Hybrid Jazz is a vision of all that is Jazz - both traditional & contemporary, domestic & global. The show features music and guests for three hours on Tuesday and Thursday.
International Jazz Day was declared by the UNESCO - the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization - in 2011 "to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe." Celebrated on April 30th, the idea came from jazz pianist and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Herbie Hancock.
Jazz Day is chaired by Hancock and the UNESCO Director-General. The celebration is recognized on the calendars of both UNESCO and the United Nations. The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, an American NGO also chaired by Hancock, is the lead organizational partner for Jazz Day. The Institute coordinates activities in the UNESCO member states as well as the Global Host Celebration. Events in the Host City culminate in an All-Star Global Concert, which involves over two-dozen jazz musicians from around the world performing in or around an historical landmark. (Wikipedia)
