Nairobi turns out in thousands for the Inaugural BC International Jazz Festival 2023

Music is often described as the art of sound. It expresses the ideas and emotions of the musician in different forms. You end up feeling the emotion the musician is conveying. In the end, it brings us together and connects us together no matter the distance, language or borders.

Former Safaricom CEO the late Bob Collymore loved music and not just any, but Jazz. He was a fine Saxophone player, who loved playing playing Louis Armstrong’s It is A Wonderful World among many other jazzy tunes. Because of this, he initiated the Safaricom Jazz Festival, which saw several of the world’s biggest Jazz artists perform in Nairobi and in turn became one of Nairobi’s most loved day time events- a must attend.
