MUSIC AT MCB | JAZZMIN'S FESTIVAL – WOMEN IN MUSIC
Photos: Jazzmin’s Big Band
In celebration of women’s month, the Museu da Casa Brasileira – an institution of the São Paulo State Secretariat for Culture and Creative Economy – institutionally supports the Jazzmin’s: Women in Music Festival, which takes place between the 24th and 27th of March – always from 7pm on the band’s Youtube.
Jazzmin’s Big Band is a music group partner of MCB and composed of 17 women who have been innovating in the music scene since 2016, when they consolidated their pioneering work as an instrumental band exclusively for women in a mostly male universe. The formation still stands out for its particular sonority, which combines vibraphone, clarinet, clarone, horn and flutes with traditional instruments of a big band.
The festival has the ProAC 60-2020 Edital, Awards and Festivals axis and will be held over four days with a program full of national and author music, lectures and round tables that seek to raise awareness about the role of women in music and deepen the debates about gender inequality in the arts.
