Jazz Goa is formed by a group of musicians and music lovers to promote jazz in and out of Goa. The club's principal aim is to improve the lot and provide an organised platform for local as well as visiting international jazz musicians. Goa has always been a favoured chillout destination for some of the world's greatest jazz musicians. Beautiful surroundings, peaceful laidback lifestyle and the people's genuine warmth and hospitality has made Goa an inspirational paradise for creative artistes from all over the world. Jazz Goa will play host to visiting jazz musicians offering them opportunities to perform in informal jam sessions as well as full fledged concerts and professional gigs at various venues in Goa that feature live jazz.
Jazz currently has a niche audience in Goa and one of Jazz Goa's goals is to broaden the listener base by encouraging general music lovers to experience and enjoy the magic of spontaneously improvised music through workshops and interactive sessions with performers. Spontaneous improvisation are the keywords to jazz and very often jazz musicians create some of the most memorable music in live performance as opposed to recordings produced in clinical studio sessions. Future plans of Jazz Goa includes releasing live recordings of selected performances in Goa, sourcing corporate sponsorship to launch deserving local jazz musicians at an international level and scholorships to finance talented youngsters who would like to study jazz at some of the worlds best institutes. Most importantly, with current trends of canned music being peddled as live music, Jazz Goa hopes to keep live music alive in Goa! for more information about Jazz Goa please visit www.jazzgoa.com
