Jazz makes a comeback on the local Seychelles scene

Poster,-final-2015The jazz scene has been a dormant giant for a number of years in Seychelles but the giant is soon to be awakened with the hosting of the ‘Jazz Festival Soiree 2015’ on Friday 27th February, at the Espace building.

Organisers Seychelles, a public relations, conference & events management company in collaboration with the culture department of the Ministry of Tourism & Culture is hoping to promote jazz on the local scene.

This will be an avant-goût  to check the public’s response, in line with the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (Unesco) International Jazz day on the 30th of April.

Starting in the late 90s jazz festival was once popular and organised on a large scale in Seychelles.  Accomplished local musicians along with those coming in from neighbouring islands and South Africa performed at the National Theatre, Creole Institute and outside the national library.  The crowd kept building up each year and the Seychellois public was developing an appreciation of the rhythmic element of the jazz genre.

Jazz Festival Soiree 2015 represents a revival, guests can expect performances by the likes of Fabquartet, Zenith Band, Intimate Sound, Jerry Souris, to name just a few. The festival will end with a jam session and also a souvenir photo session on stage with the groups.

Representatives from different tourism establishments will also attend this spectacular event and this will allow them to see some local jazz band in action and  might be useful to them during their functions.

Middle-aged jazz and classical music lover is the targeted audience.

The event is open to the general public and there will be refreshments on sale.  For those seeking a more exclusive experience out of this soiree they can purchase a VIP pass, whereby they can expect to be served with wine, platter of cheese/ grapes and assorted canapés.

A rare opportunity to appreciate the mood and ticklish sensations associated with a live performance of jazz music genre, should not be missed.
