European Jazz Meetings 2022

25. 06. - 25. 06. 2022

Peking, China

China is still home to many talented jazz musicians who come from European countries. With the aim of providing a platform that allows those musicians to create a common musical message, the Polish Institute – Cultural Service of the Embassy of Poland in Beijing together with EUNIC China Cluster (TBC) formed the project EU Jazz Session 2022. EU Jazz Session 2022 aims to create new jazz pieces based on folk music from different countries, composed and performed by musicians from the EU. The project aims to deepen the dialogue between jazz and folk, musicians from different countries, as well as promote a jazz dialogue between Europe and China. Thanks to the collaboration with the China Jazz Musicians Association, We aim to provide Chinese audience with live concerts in jazz halls, festivals all over China, as well as shared online broadcasts on multiple platforms (Weibo, Tencent Art). The launch of the European Jazz Gatherings project in China is scheduled for the 2022 NCPA Jazz Festival.
