DC: German Jazz Exhibition On View Until Jan. 26

Very few music genres have been – and continue to be – formed through such a turbulent history as that of jazz. Deeply rooted in the Afro-American blues- and ragtime scene of New Orleans, jazz transformed and redefined itself in the 1920s, spreading like musical wildfire worldwide as a messenger of a new esthetic. It quickly gained a foothold in Germany, where it became the soundtrack for the Roaring Twenties Berlin. No charge. Gallery Hours: Mon- Thu 9 a.m.-6:30 p.m. & Fri 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Location: GOETHE-INSTITUT WASHINGTON, 1990 K Street NW, Suite 03, Washington, DC
