BNP Paribas loves jazz! That’s why we sponsor North Sea Jazz and support jazz musicians in developing their careers. Many artists have beautiful and inspiring stories about how it all began. We invited artists performing at North Sea Jazz to share their story at 21dimes. Enjoy!

BNP Paribas’ aim to support jazz talent is an important focus in its partnership with North Sea Jazz. That’s why we support the festival’s Paul Acket award for an artist deserving wider recognition. Additionally, we support North Sea Jazz Kids, aimed at bringing children into contact with jazz music.
