Jazz4Rare 2024 | Marcin Wasilewski Trio | Magda Kuraś Quintet + online

Polska 1, Gdynia, Poland


Why jazz? Jazz has a positive effect on the body and soul, including those affected by rare diseases. Moreover, jazz is often an improvisation, it is a blend of talent, knowledge, happiness and intuition. It is a constant walking on the undiscovered land, exploring the unknown, it is often improvised expeditions in the unknown direction, just as the heart and mind tells. It’s exactly the same with rare disease activities, and since jazz and rare diseases have so much in common, why not combine them?

Why the Emigration Museum? Often the diagnosis of a rare disease heard by the child’s parents is both the end and the beginning, a peculiar moment of the turning point that closes one stage and opens another, which is a kind of journey to find therapy, treatment or stabilization. In the overwhelming majority of cases, it is a journey into the unknown, without a clearly defined direction – it is emigration from the comfort zone to a new life, a life with a rare disease. Therefore, there is no better place than the Emigration Museum in Gdynia to merge jazz and journey into the music world dedicated to the rare diseases.

As part of this year’s edition of Jazz4Rare 2024, February 24 at 18:00 at the Emigration Museum in Gdynia & YouTube’s channel of the Foundation BB (LINK to YouTube stream) we will hear:
