MUSON Festival Jazz Nite

Get inspired with some jazz music over this weekend. I know I listen to music sometimes when I write, what about you?

After a two-year break, the MUSON Festival Jazz Nite returns tomorrow, November 6 and Saturday, November 7 at the Shell Nigeria Hall of MUSON Centre, Onikan, Lagos.

The jazz component of the annual music festival was last held in 2006 when acclaimed Grammy award winning guitarist, Earl Klugh performed alongside Lagbaja.

South African master guitarist, Jimmy Dludlu will headline the two-day event starting by 7pm daily. He will be supported by six Nigerians including jazz trumpeter, Biodun Adebiyi and vocalist and guitarist, Beautiful Nubia.

Others are jazz contrabassist, Bright Gain, Mfon Umana, Pure and Simple (Ifiok Effanga and Nathan McDonald) and the 5 YZ Men, a group of five young musicians currently pursuing a diploma certificate in music at the MUSON School of Music.

Dludlu will be supported on Friday by Pure & Simple, Beautiful Nubia and Biodun & Batik while the 5 YZ Men, Mfon and Bright Gain will perform alongside him on Saturday. Popular radio personalities, Dan Foster and Tosyn Bucknor will anchor proceedings.
