Jazz for Change

Jazz for Change

Jazz for Change is a project in which a platform is created to write, record and play on stage compositions in a fusion of jazz- and world music to create a positive change in this turbulent world. To combine a musical and spiritual search of each musician, creates a deep sensation of the music.

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” – Saint Frances of Assisi –

East meets West

When the Dutch vocalist / bassist Henk de Laat and the Iraqi quanun player Osama Abdulrasol met each other musically at the poetry festival the Winternachten in The Hague in 2008, a magical spark jumped over to the audience.

“Seek the wisdom that will untie your knot. Seek the path that demands your whole being.” – Rumi –

Since then they play in duo all over the planet with great craftsmanship, passion and pleasure.

The musicians invite you to join a musical journey in which diverse cultures effortlessly merge into original compositions with plenty of room for improvisation.
