Diplomat Artist Buzz on International Jazz Day – 30 April

Music is beyond just entertainment, but part of a culture shared from Africa to the Americas to Asia and Europe. It promotes a vision of what is possible when the globe treasures identity, artistic expression & culture & works in harmony toward mutual respect.

International Jazz Day

International Jazz Day: “When a human being is oppressed, the natural tendency is to feel anger. Jazz is a response to oppression that is not bullets & blood. Jazz is the expression of harmony – at same time of hope & freedom.” Herbie Hancock

Dubbed the “Diamond Child of Turkey” and the “Voice of Peace,” Ersin Faikzade’s music continues to resonate his talents as well as his humanity.  With great anticipation, I’m happy to announce that Ersin Faikzade has released a new album.

Last April, we introduced Ersin to our readers by honoring him as April’s Diplomat Artist of the Month (See my previous blog :  http://www.filmannex.com/posts/blog_show_post/ersin-faikzade-aprils-diplomat-artist/49536    and the International Human Rights Council (IHRC) “Ambassador of Goodwill for Humanity.”)

After his mother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Faikzade devoted himself to the sick and needy. With this objective in mind, he has given many free concerts for various charities and organizations in Turkey. Through his participation in international humanitarian projects like the Plast Lluest Day Service for the mentally disabled, he particularly aims to help those who are struggling with Down’s Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Leprosy, and Cancer. In Turkey, Ersin is a member of the Buca Disabled Society, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the Fight Against Leprosy Association, the Antalya People-Who-Do-Not-Know-Barriers Association, the Turkish Education Foundation (TEV) and the Mothers Association. On the international stage, he is a member of the European Union Former Volunteers, The DIANA Princess of Wales Organization, the International Still’s Disease Foundation, and the World Friendship Force Organization.

Ersin captures people all over the world through his songs and personal appearances. An international bridge and bond in love between East and West, both the western and eastern melodies of his music are blended. His rich tenor embodies romantic ballads with traditional and classical Turkish sound, infused with French, Italian, and Spanish accents utilizing a modern infrastructure.
In this music album, songs in many areas are represented, including friendship, unconditional love, family, loyalty, eternity, and death.  Consisting of 33 reeds from the orchestra, it is a true  musical feast and was many years in the making.  It is Ersin Faikzad’s Gift to Humanity.  The cd with itunes also will be sold all over the globe where his worldwide fan base will have access to his music and message of love and peace.

Turkey is also in the spotlight with recent, exciting news from UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.) On April 30, 2013, Istanbul will be the global host of the second International Jazz Day. Says UNESCO’s Director-General, Irina Bokova: “A meeting place of global cultures, Istanbul is an ideal location to highlight the extensive influence of jazz.”  Last year, at the initiative of UNESCO’s Goodwill Ambassador Herbie Hancock and in partnership with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, International Jazz Day was adopted by UNESCO Member States.

Like Ersin Faikzade’s music, all music inspires a global harmony, solidarity, respect, global justice, and peace.  Says Ersin, ” Tell him he always says: until my death, I will continue to well-being.”

“Encore,” Ersin, and “Encore” Istanbul International Jazz Day, for a more peaceful and better orchestrated world.
