JAZZ PO POLSKU is a music project presenting a wide spectrum of Polish musicians from the jazz & avantgarde scene.
It aims at refreshing the image of Polish jazz music on the international arena through presenting the most prospective bands from the Polish music scene. It also helps in establishing cultural cooperation and brings together artists from many countries. Since 2014, the Jazz Po Polsku project has already organized more than 300 events for 20 bands in Asia. Last year three bands from Asia were touring in Poland as part of a bilateral cooperation, JPP has been founded and coordinated by Jakub Krzeszowski and supported by Plateaux Foundation.
JPP has so far organized Polish concerts among others at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2012 (Denmark); Jazzmeile Thüringen 2014-2015 (Germany); OCT-Loft Jazz Festival 2014-2019 (China); Beijing Nine Gates Festival 2015-2018 (China); Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival 2015-2017 (Scotland); Guangzhou Jazz Festival 2016 (China); Hue Festival 2016 (Vietnam); Penang Island Jazz Festival 2016-2017 (Malaysia), World Youth Jazz Festival 2017-2019 (Malaysia), Java Jazz Festival 2018-2019 (Indonesia), Rainforest Jazz Festival 2019 (Korea), Taichung Jazz Festival 2019 (Taiwan), Philippines International Jazz Festival 2019.
