"Learning Icelandic in a Tin Can Factory"

Scott Shigeoka is a Fulbright-mtvU Fellow in Iceland. In a recent blog post, he shares his experience learning Icelandic in an alternative, continuing education school in Reykjavík. "Learning Icelandic has helped me experience the country on a deeper level that transcends the nature and music scene for which it is often stereotypically appreciated. The best part of Tin Can Factory, however, was to be a part of a community that had a shared goal of bridging the distance between foreigners and locals."

Today is International Jazz Day!

"Jazz is really about the human experience. It’s about the ability of human beings to take the worst of circumstances and struggles and turn it into something creative and constructive. That’s something that’s built into the fiber of every human being. And I think that’s why people can respond to it. They feel the freedom in it. And the attributes of jazz are also admirable. It’s about dialogue. It’s about sharing. And teamwork. It’s in the moment, and it's nonjudgmental."- Herbie Hancock.

UNESCO created International Jazz Day to celebrate music and to “highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe.”

This video explains the purpose behind International #Jazz Day and announces today’s ‪#‎JazzDay‬ all-star global webcast taking place today. To watch the telecast of this year's concert, visit http://jazzday.com at 1pm ET/7pm Paris time/2am (May 1) Tokyo time!
