WYJF Goes Global!

World Youth Jazz Festival (WYJF) will be launched globally at The WYJF World Launch together with the launch of WYJF Bogor, Indonesia, on 7 September 2013 at The Amphitheater, Jungleland, Sentul City, Bogor, Indonesia.

In celebrating this, a 3rd WYJF will be held at the same venue, The Amphitheater, Jungleland, Sentul City, Bogor, Indonesia, on 7 and 8 September 2013, albeit on a smaller scale than the first and second WYJFs held in Putrajaya, Malaysia in 2012 and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2013 respectively.

The final list of International artistes are being completed now. We are happy to announce the first 5 acts confirmed ready to JAZZ UP WYJF in Bogor. They are:

  1. Joey Alexander (10 year old Indonesian piano prodigy who this year won the 2013 World Jazz Improvisation Contest in Russia) and Friends.
  2. The “New” Three Song
  3. Joan Jim Quintet feat. Aiman Imran
  4. Prema Yin
  5. Bizhu.

Many more on the wish list are going through the rigorous scrutiny for selection by the Selection Committee headed by Mr. Idang Rasjidi. Will advise final list and program soonest possible.

Make a date with us on 7 and 8 September 2013 in Bogor, Indonesia for this historic jazz event.
