Welcome to our website!


The Swing Jazz Culture Foundation was established on March 17, 2004 with the goal of cultivating the traditional swing-jazz culture of the 30s and 40s. We would like to popularize and promote the professional development of the Hungarian representatives, to provide an insight into the European and American jazz-music world and to the European Christian music culture, through gospel music.


The Foundation organizes annually the Louis Armstrong Jazz Festival on the water stage, by the shore of picturesque Lake in Bánk, and the “Wings of the Music” gospel music concert series.


We paid special attention to help and promote other branches, therefore we support the creators through the implementation of various projects throughout our entire year: organizing photo exhibitions, supporting book and record publishing, creating websites for artists, etc.



The purpose of creating and operating the Foundation:

  • organizing and conducting an annual jazz music festival, as well as concerts, organizing music events.
  • jazz music ensembles – studio recording and publishing, media appearances, to support participation in music events.
  • supporting public music performance for talented young people, who interested in Jazz music and for talented students of jazz classes in music schools.
