Hey everyone,

We started a project about jazz in our country (Lithuania) as well as jazz in Soviet Union (since Lithuania for a long time has been its part). Just wanted to share an experimental educational video, which may be interesting for you.

Overall, jazz is different in every country. Would like to find out more about styles of not popular countries, speaking about this genre, like Poland (I've heard they have some sick traditions, know a few musicians, like Tomasz Stanko) or Balkan Peninsula, for example.

Nice. (incidentally maybe you want to edit your profile , you’ve misspelled Lithuania there)



Jazz was always very popular in most of the C.C.C.P and it has kept popular in many of the countries which after the fall of the Berlin wall at long last separated from the Soviet Union.

The Baltic republics were no different and if anything Jazz was even more popular there than elsewhere. The first Jazz band was formed as early as 1940.

There are indeed several projects which aim to remember and promote Lithuanian jazz.

I find this topic pretty interesting. Vilnius jazz, yes, this is a website where you can find a lot of information about jazz in U.S.S.R. By the way, two of the three biggest jazz festivals (Vilnius jazz and Mama jazz, both in Vilnius) are going to be organised next month)
