ABOUT

OUR STORY

Founded by a Malaysian Jazz Personality, The WORLD YOUTH JAZZ FESTIVAL (abbreviated as WYJF) took off jointly under the initiatives of the Malaysian Minister Of Youth And Sports and Jazz Community Malaysia (JAZZCOMM). Here, the youth of the world would not only be able to showcase their jazz talents but to also integrate, collaborate, interact and network between themselves and established jazz musicians from all over the world not only amongst jazz lovers but with other lovers of other genres of music, towards world peace and harmony.

Besides the annual festival named WORLD YOUTH JAZZ FESTIVAL (WYJF), there would be constant jazz events and happenings to make Malaysia the true home of World Youth Jazz. Prior to the main event annually, a series of mini jazzfests would hopefully be held in Putrajaya and other cities in Malaysia to keep jazz alive and growing.

WORLD YOUTH FESTIVALS MANAGEMENT SDN. BHD., that owns the rights, organises and manages WYJF, welcomes all youths of the world to join in our effort to promote jazz worldwide and make this world a beautiful place to live for all,

“BEYOUTHIFUL”
By The Youth,
With The Youth,
