An international Co-operation

Jazz Against Apartheid expands this Frankfurt story to include jazz’s hitherto largely unknown African heritage and a specific hardship of exile. The Jazz Against Apartheid project is the first direct meeting between German and South African musicians to exchange experiences of exile and how they are audible in music.
