Save the date: Jahazi Literary & Jazz Festival is in September!

29 May

Looking for a scintillating weekend of open-air jazz concerts, storytelling, poetry readings, free music and literary workshops, VIP dinners and the best after parties in town? Then book your flight and come and see us in Zanzibar!. Welcome to Jahazi Literary & Jazz Festival 2012!


Join us for a long and lazy weekend of literary and jazz delights featuring home grown and international talent, all ready to take center stage in the world heritage site of Stone Town, Zanzibar.

The rich diversity of festivalgoers, all looking for first class entertainment, enjoy being mentally stimulated by great debate, frank, and honest discussion. And so, to balance out the fun-side of our festival, the topical theme that highlights serious issues and encourages festivalgoers to take part in open debate and share their views is – ‘The current global economic state, its origin and relevance to Africa, and where should we go from here?’ – not to be missed!.

Remember, last year, Al Campos – singer, trombone player, songwriter, producer and arranger. He performs in the genres of Soul, Jazz, Funk & Salsa, with deep roots in Gospel music –


participated in the Festival in 2011 and made us the honour to be our guest at Kandili Villa where he wrote our jingle


and the tribute song for MV Spice Islander which sank while he was on the Island.


Hopefully he will be back this year and we are all eager to see and hear him again!
