The Windhoek Jazz Festival was officially launched at Protea Hotel Fursteinhof last night, with 10 acts that are expected to perform on 26 October at the Hage Geingob Stadium.
South Africantrumpeter Hugh Masekela and Zahara are the only foreign musicians that will perform on the night of the Jazz festivities.
Windhoek will be giving Fu Jazz All Stars, MOJ’s, Elemotho, Sharon-unplugged, Ama-Khoe, Big Ben and Mahetage a chance to show their flair that night.
The event was officiated by Windhoek Deputy Mayor, Muese Kazapua on behalf of the Mayor.
“I have no doubt that this year’s Jazz Festival will attract a bigger audience, given the fact that it is coinciding with the much anticipated Adventure World Travel Summit – Welcoming Event, which will be hosted in our capital city. We are indeed honoured to be associated with such a prestigious event” Kazapua said.
The continued hosting of the Windhoek Jazz Festival will create a platform for economic growth and business development, also elevating Windhoek’s status as a cultural and artistic vibrant city.
The Windhoek Jazz Festival also unveiled its website to create interaction with the Jazz Festival audiences.
Elemotho entertained the audience with songs from his album that landed him the international award, 2012 RFI/France 24 Discovery Awards.
He performed alongside Samuel Batola.
The Windhoek Jazz Festival is hosted by City of Windhoek, with the support of Old Mutual, Windhoek Lager, Air Namibia, 99 FM, Jameson, Ad Force and National Arts Council.
