Poland has long and rich jazz traditions. Jazz has been a very popular and cultivated genre since the end of the Second World War. Under communism, jazz was tied to the movement for freedom and democracy. Nowadays, Poland is a home to many rising stars on the jazz scene, widely acknowledged and appreciated both at home and abroad.
We are very excited to announce that The Kosciuszko Foundation has partnered with Washington D.C's most prominent jazz club, Blues Alley Jazz Club, in creating a new concert in-person series titled The Kosciuszko Jazz.
The series will have its premiere on Monday, September 12 showcasing Polish guitarist, Paweł Ignatowicz. Please join us in celebrating and supporting our great Polish musicians each month for an incredible performance and night out in Washington D.C.!
The Kosciuszko Jazz Series was introduced with an online episode on the Kosciuszko TV Youtube Channel. Head over to our channel to watch an online jazz episode with Paweł Ignatowicz.
Please join us at these concerts, and support Polish Jazz with our Polish - American community!
