SAFARICOM JAZZ FESTIVAL:my own Rendition!

Jazz is music for the soul and medicine for the heart.In my teens i listened to jazz music each time i felt unsettled and needed to relax.When Lukagwa was started Afro-jazz was the background music i would play to enhance creativity.My favourite artist at the time was Hugh Masekela……Then i came across Isaiah Katumwa on his first visit to Kenya his song “Sunrise” was my daily anthem.On a random afternoon i googled African jazz and stumbled on Jimmy DluDlu his music is heaven on earth.Swahili Jazz Band from Mombasa has a refreshing twist to Jazz music.At the Launch Of Safaricom Jazz festival ,i had the honor of meeting and listening to Jonathan Butler!The perfection in his blend of rhythm took my breath away.Lukagwa and other artisans like Otenge accessories had the pleasure of exhibiting at the Safaricom Jazz Festival.I needed to share my experience……..
