You love Jazz?

Safaricom International Jazz Festival will feature international and local artists with the week-long concerts ending with a family extravaganza at the Ngong Racecourse.

RICHARD BONA, Rhythm Junks (Belgium), The Nile Project (Nile Basin), and Yuval Cohen (Israel) all perform at the festival.

From its origin in New Orleans, Jazz has traversed continents and has drawn from different national and regional cultures to give rise to many distinctive styles.

The Festival will be an exciting one week multi-venue music and cultural festival, showcasing the best in emerging and acclaimed talent from Africa and beyond.

The aim is to bring the first of a kind Jazz Festival in Kenya at an affordable cost that will give Kenyans from all walks of life an opportunity to sample timeless music that is jazz.

Tickets are available for KSh 2500 VIP, Ksh 1000 regular and Ksh 300 for students. Children under 12 come in free as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult. Proceeds from this event will go towards purchase of music instruments for the Ghetto Classics Music Program.

The Ghetto Classics programme is a community programme that involves over 300 children in Korogocho – one of Kenya’s biggest slums that is home to about 300,000 urban poor. Music education provides the youth with opportunities to better themselves and their community.

February 23rd is the date, mark your calendars.
