About UNDERWORLD JAZZ FESTIVAL:

The 2nd Annual Underworld Jazz Festival takes this year on May 11 – 25, 2019.

The festival not only calls attention to Cincinnati based acts, but also features national and international artists creating unique, interactive work at a variety of venues across Greater Cincinnati. This includes the return of Napoleon Maddox’s “Twice The First Time” (stories of Millie-Christine McKoy) and his Mobilization of Congo Square project, powered by People’s Liberty.

The curators of the UnderWorld Jazz Festival value and recognize the history of “Jazz” as social music. Jazz was born from field/work songs, surviving slavery, migration and the African-American cultural experience as it relates to spirituals and blues. New forms of art expression continue to develop and become new trends because of this rich musical history.
