Jazz is a celebration of the human spirit expressed through music. Jazz Utsav is a festival of this celebration, the annual coming together of jazz music, jazz musicians and jazz fans for three days in November, in Mumbai and Delhi.

Since the 1980s, when it was known as the Jazz Yatra, this festival of music has been one of the highpoints of the cultural calendar in the two cities.

From the early years, musicians from all over the world, many of them household names, like Sonny Rollins, Stephan Grappelli, Trilok Guru and Freddie Hubbard, have enthralled audiences.
