Hello Jazz (HEJ JAZZ) is a Danish jazz orchestra that plays songs, stories, and instrumentals inspired by meetings between musicians and children. The music is full of fantasy and inspires children to improvise and play with their voices and movement. The concerts engage both children and their grown-ups in the experience.
A concert with HEJ JAZZ will inspire the audience to listen, play, and dance. It’s all about feeling jazz, getting close to jazz, listening to jazz, and being inspired to create jazz yourself. A natural part of the concert is the ending, when the participating children get the chance to come close to the musicians and try their instruments after the last composition.
HEJ JAZZ was nominated for “Best Jazz Act of the Year” at the 2020 Danish Music Awards Jazz.
