Jazz has a diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe, according to the United Nations' cultural organization (UNESCO).

Every year on 30 April, International Jazz Day brings together communities, artists, historians and jazz enthusiasts to celebrate and learn about jazz and its roots.

The musical genre is recognized for promoting peace, dialogue among cultures, diversity, and respect for human rights and dignity.
