Safaricom Jazz Festival-Feb 2017

Safaricom has over the years done Kenyans a huge service especially to music lovers. I love good music. I have followed this journey religiously since 2011 when Lady Blacksmith Mambazo brought the house down with their rhythmic dances; they have not aged. I have seen Jonathan Butler, Isaiah Katumwa,Richard Bona, Kunle Ayo , Jimmy Dludlu, Swahili Jazz Band, Kirk Whalum and Norman Brown, Gerald Albright, Shelea Frazier, Hugh Masekela among many more that have graced the stage over the years.

So i got the opportunity to attend latest Safaricom Jazz Festival. It had all the pomp and colour of an international acclaimed fete. The organisation was top-notch and all gears were engaged to go. The event was held at the spacious Safaricom Stadium -Kasarani. There were great artists lined up with the highlight being David Sanborn who was joined by the following artists:

  • Taxi Wars – Belgium
  • The Hazelnuts – Israel
  • Arun Ghosh – UK
  • Bokani Dyer – South Africa
  • Ray Lema – Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Saka Saka Band – Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Shamsi Music – Kenya
  • Nairobi Horns Project – Kenya
  • Mwai and The Truth – Kenya

What a show !

See for yourself
