Two time Grammy nominee and South African jazz phenomenon Hugh Masekela and the opening bands, Mwai & The Truth and the Nairobi Horns Project are three reasons why you need to grab your ticket today.
This edition’s theme is Music That Moves in appreciation of the jazz fans who play a role in positively impacting the lives of over 650 youths each week through Ghetto Classics, a community based programme that uses music education to provide the youth with opportunities to better themselves and their communities.
The recent launch saw magical performances from the two bands that will be opening and Shamsi Music who will also take part in the Safaricom Jazz Festival 2016/2017. If the music at the launch is anything to go by, then trust me when I tell you this edition will be nothing short of sensational.
The place to be is Uhuru Gardens on 12th August. Entry charges are Ksh. 2,000 and Ksh. 500 for students. You can get your tickets either at the Safaricom Shops or through m-ticketing by dialing 1511. Gates open at 6:30 pm.
