Syncopation Society in Jazzahead!

Jazzahead! ist das europäische Treffen für die weltweite Jazz-Community, das normalerweise in Bremen stattfindet und wie viele andere Veranstaltungen auch, dieses Jahr online abgehalten wurde.

Florent und François waren dabei, um die Syncopation Society zu vertreten und ganz allgemein die lebendige Szene des frühen Jazz, die den meisten Jazzprofis oft völlig unbekannt ist.

BackBeat Jazz Academy in Kosmos Viertel

The education of the younger generation is very important to us and with this in mind, in partnership with Verband der Musikschulen, Cabuwazi and WeTek, we are launching the “BackBeat Jazz Academy”. Financed by the Kultur macht stark program, this project aims to make young people at the Kosmos Viertel in Altglieniecke aware of the professional environment of jazz musicians. The program includes the discovery of music instruments together with professional musicians from our circle. We also cover the history of jazz and its relation to contemporary music, an introduction to sound recording, video production and finally the organisation of a concert.

Given the COVID restrictions, the sessions are currently happening online on the platform Discord with videos and Live sessions.
