This year marks the 5th aniversary of the Safaricom Jazz Lounge and what better way to celebrate this than a concert to commemorate our love for Jazz. Featuring renowned performers such as Alune Wade (from Senegal), Kavita Shah (from US), The Limericks (Kenya) and Mambo Tribe (Kenya) you can be sure you’ll have an amazing experience.

Music lovers can expect to enjoy a selection of pure jazz as well as a mix of jazz fusions with influences from around the world.

All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the Ghetto Classics, a non-profit programme that teaches music skills to the youth from underprivileged backgrounds. To date we have successfully raised over 19million towards this programme to uplift the lives of many youth by way of providing musical instruments, classes, and much more
