As deep appreciators of music, we, the Chiang Mai Jazz Festival team, realize the importance of encouraging our fellow international musicians to express their love of music within our community. Our wish is to ensure that international artists feel welcomed, and that their talent will always be heard and appreciated. We wish also to show our support of local expat musicians by inviting them to demonstrate their skills on the stage and, if they so wish, to volunteer to present work shops to the community.
