On May 1st, music lovers thronged Carnivore Grounds for a celebration of Safaricom Jazz at 5.

This was a celebration of 5 years of Safaricom Jazz Festival and guests were treated to epic performances by the best in the Jazz genre such as Gogosimo Band, Eddie Grey, Mambo Tribe, Chris Bittok, Nairobi Horns, Kavutha Mwanzia, to mention but a few and the main act, the legendary Manu Dibango.

As usual, proceeds of the event go towards Ghetto Classics, an initiative by Safaricom to give talented but less fortunate kids a platform to learn and showcase their musical talent. During the event, the Ghetto Classics received a cheque of Ksh 18,478,900. Talk about music for a good cause!

Despite the dull weather, jazz music enthusiasts had an awesome afternoon of food, drinks and grooving to music that moves!
