Pictures are always a powerful representation of things. As the celebration of African Jazz came and went at the Carnivore grounds last week alongside International Jazz Day, here are some pictures to forever remain in our memories are we remember the day.

The stage was all set for the concert. It was also well prepared for the rains though not a drop poured that day.

 

Fans were all set and ready. Like Susan Mukami here who’s T-shirt aptly screamed ‘Unani Jazz”.

 

Kato Change.

 

Power Music couple Jacob Asiyo and Kavutha Asiyo on stage.

 

Silky voice Kavutha Asiyo who for years has been synonymous with Safaricom Jazz.

 

On the drums for Nairobi Horns Project. The beautiful smile tells it all.

 

All about the drums. Meet Paco Sery.

 

The fans were this close to joining Paco Sery on stage.

 

Master South African Trumpeter Mandla Mlangeni.

 

Cheick Tidiane Seck from Mali on stage. Very well connected with the crowds.

 

Once again, given half a chance, fans would have gotten on stage 😀

Ghetto Classics on stage.

 

All proceeds from Safaricom Jazz concerts go to the Korogocho based music program Ghetto Classics, that nurtures kids from disadvantaged families using music.
