Congo Square was formed in the winter of 2002 as a non-profit society to promote jazz and blues in India. Members of Congo Square have had experience of running an international jazz festival, Jazzfest, every year from 1978-82. These featured over 30 international jazz groups of the best-known musicians from USA and Europe. We were also proactive in promoting overseas visitors and Indian talent, including epoch-makers such as Shakti, Joe Williams, Mingus Dynasty. The audiences always numbered upwards of a thousand - youth, musicians and aficionados. These memorable concerts stopped only because the youthful organising team set off on divergent careers.
Congo Square is formed to reach the largest number of music-lovers in Kolkata with the best music - jazz, blues, jazz-rock, rock n' roll, fusion, etc.
