What is Jazz Kissa?

Jazz Kissa (cafe) is a Japanese Style Hardcore Jazz Cafe Subculture originated in 1960's where people soaked themselves to hear jazz frantically on vinyl (or CD sometimes) for hours. The owners own a gigantic tube amps and speakers for the ultimate quality listening.

WARNING: This is not your typical mingle and chit-chat cafe culture. There is in fact one house rule, and that is to ask everyone to observe silence when the music is playing.

WLJ SG loves this culture so much and we wanted to revive this culture for the sake of all jazz fanatics' pleasure and has started collecting every jazz musicians' picks since last year to compile into a playlist. We are so excited that Pendulumic Headphones are sponsoring us this year with 4 pairs of headphones, that will enhance our listening with the highest sound quality.
Welcome to virtual Jazz Kissa! Where everyone loves a good jazz indulging session.

ABOUT INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY:

International Jazz Day is the culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month in the states, which draws public attention to jazz and its extraordinary heritage throughout April. In December 2012, the United Nation General Assembly formally welcomed the decision by the UNESCO General Conference to proclaim April 30 as International Jazz Day. The United Nations and UNESCO now both recognise International Jazz Day on their official calendars.
