Nov 28 - Nov 30
JakJazz is an annual festival celebrating jazz in Jakarta - Indonesia every late November/early December represents a truly exciting multi-cultural and international event, while maintaining its unique, down home charm and intimacy. A one-of-a-kind: an eclectic and eccentric jazz festival - a lovingly crafted, indoor and open air, intimate yet festive.
The prime force behind the Jakarta International Jazz Festival (JAKJAZZ) was Indonesian musician Ireng Maulana. Ireng took a good idea that had been kicking around years and made it a reality. Over a year, Ireng Maulana and a group of close friends decided that the idea of such an international festival in Jakarta was too tantalizing to remain just a dream. They formed a steering committee to plan the extravaganza that would, in time, come to be known as "JAKJAZZ'88", the first edition of the festival.
