Venue: the Alchemist Bar, Westlands
Time: 8-10.30 pm

This year, the East Africa Arts programme will feature a dynamic collaboration at the 4th edition of the Safaricom International Jazz Festival on the 26th February. On stage will be clarinettist and composer Arun Ghosh (UK), the Nairobi Horns Project (Kenya), and percussionist and vocalist Hussein Masimbi (Tanzania).

Arun is a renowned innovator of the modern IndoJazz style, Ghosh’s sound and musical approach encompasses a huge span of music; he plays the music he loves, with jazz, classical, rock, folk, hip-hop and Afrobeat all brought together. Ghosh will be collaborating with acclaimed Tanzanian percussionist, Hussein Masimbi and the highly rated Kenyan trio of Mackinlay Mutsembi on trumpet, saxophonist Rabai Mokua and Victor Kinama on trombone to bring the SJF audience an innovative new showcase.

This eclectic trio had been exchanging music and ideas over the last month and their collaboration will come together as a performance of reworked and original pieces.

On Wednesday 22nd February 2017 we would like you to come Jam with us at the Alchemist in Westlands.
