When jazz came to France and Europe

Ernest Dawkins, Yannick Séité
conference

Let’s have two different looks at Jazz arrival in France during First World War with the Harlem Hellfighters et al. Yannick Seité, irreverent scholar and lecturer at Paris 7 University, who wrote a reference book on French literature and Jazz, will tell us about its impact on French society. Ernest Dawkins, a Chicago musician, will use his American eye to explain this founding act of Jazz internationalization.
