Rice Power Jam Executive Committee
The Executive Committee was formed on February 4, 2020. On August 8 the same year, the first Rice Power Jam – Ha! was held at Hachioji City Art & Cultural Hall, Tokyo. An expanded second edition of the festival was held in August the following year. The committee has been quick to promote the excellence of Japan’s homegrown jazz to the scene, inviting artists who have been remarkably successful in recent years as well as promising newcomers, all selected under the professional eye of festival staff with experience in jazz criticism and production, as well as inviting regional talent with little media presence.
