Fortuna Jazz Group

Fortuna Jazz Group

Fortuna Jazz Group performs a programme combining works by Bronislaw Kaper - the first ever Polish person who won an Oscar Academy Award. Kaper is the author of the greatest jazz standards such as 'On Green Dolphin Street' and 'Invitation'.

There is no doubt that jazz was created in the territory of the USA and belongs to the cultural heritage of the United States however, the direct shape was given to it, among others, by the Poles in the person of Kaper who composed music for over 150 films, and most importantly - created more than 700 jazz standards.

The concerts in October 2014 in Indonesia and Singapore begin a specific crusade of knowledge, reminding of the jazz world heritage whose one of the main form-creating factors was a forgotten Pole - Bronislaw Kaper.
