As well as sharing common origins, it was New Orleans musicians such as Fats Domino and Allen Toussaint who inspired the evolution of Ska and Rocksteady into the Reggae sound that Bob Marley made famous around the world. The Jazz Playground is a fun, interactive and educational live performance program inviting kids and adults of all ages to dance, sing and swing to the rhythms of jazz. Presented by a live band, The Jazz Playground introduces the instruments and core concepts of jazz through familiar songs, sounds and rhythms. We explore history, language and diversity through an organic and participatory jazz performance featuring a rotating roster of guest teaching-artists. Each class will introduce a new instrument or style, and will take a trip to different places or times in history to explore how jazz shaped modern music in the 20th century onwards. Above all, The Jazz Playground invites children of all ages to find their own creative space, develop their imagination and to collaborate through music.
