Dimitri Vassilakis «jazz democracy»
A TED style talk & performance as in TEDx Athens & TEDx Tokyo.
TEDx Tokyo jam session
In this talk/performance the aim is to present the way a universal language such as jazz functions under the prism of the democratic principles that Greece gave to the world.
It will be shown how in jazz the musicians communicate in equal terms regardless of their race, color, background ethnicity, language, education, economic and social statue, fame, age, etc.
All this in reference with the way a democratic society can work using dialogue based on communication, conversation, respect, appreciation, ecumenic universality.
With my Athens quartet on this occasion we were able to show how we can collaborate under different circumstances
and settings in music, style and language.
