Talking about Jazz and New Zealand Identity

An exciting roundtable event debating national identity and jazz

National identities as attached to music have a long history of debate, but what purpose do they serve today in the 21st century outside of institutional demands for national identity? At this roundtable event hosted by the Tuatara Third Eye, join eminent New Zealand jazz historian Dr. Aleisha Ward and New Zealand School of Music’s Dr. Dave Wilson and a panel of scholars and musicians, including Lisa Tomlins, Jasmine Lovell-Smith, Dr. Nick Tipping and Ron Samsom for a lively discussion about the definitions and merits of the New Zealand identity in jazz.
