WHAT IS JAZZ | Movie Night: “Been rich all my life” (2006)

18/2, 18.30-20.30 @Rhythm Hoppers studio

“What is Jazz” open discussion group is a Rhythm Hoppers initiative aimed at exploring Jazz dances beyond the scope of in-classroom instructing and social dancing.

“What is Jazz / Movie Nights” are curated screenings of classic movies, soundies or documentaries that serve as a cinematic journey through the evolution of this iconic musical genre. Our screenings provide a vibrant platform for in-depth exploration, discussion, and appreciation of Jazz’s multifaceted legacy. Each session begins with a brief presentation highlighting the film’s significance and spotlighting the featured artists, followed by an engaging open discussion.

The discussion will be conducted in Greek. The documentary will have English subtitles.

The documentary offers a profound and inspiring glimpse into the lives of the Silver Belles, former chorus girls from Harlem’s Renaissance era who are still grooving on well into their 80s and 90s. In their prime, the women performed with such luminaries as Bill Robinson, Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington.
