In 2011, UNESCO established International Jazz Day for “the recognized diplomatic role of jazz in uniting people in all corners of the globe”.
The Capri International Jazz Day event is sponsored by Middle Sea Jazz under the patronage of Centro Caprense Ignazio Cerio. It is produced by Lana Sorrento, which received a special designation from UNESCO as a special presenter of the event. In a recent interview, Sorrento stated: “Jazz is the only musical form that does not come exclusively from a race or a nationality, but rather from a combination of different races, legacies and traditions. I believe that jazz is an international language, an art and a symbol of global unity that should be expressed to all peoples “. He adds: “For me, Capri embodies a long tradition of international artistic expression. What better place to honor the art of jazz? Moreover, I love Capri and its people! “
