Masa Hotel was the place to be for jazz lovers this past Sunday. Boogieman productions in conjunction with Kgalagadi Jazz Beats hosted the international jazz day, whose sole aim is to celebrate jazz with the genre enthusiasts while at the same time learning more about jazz on a whole other level.
Some of the people who graced the event were Miss Mogami and Frank Piscioneri from Botswana Jazz Association, who led discussions on international Jazz day as well as Jazz in today’s society.
On the decks were various artists like DJ Archie, DJ Humzie, Uncle Barox and Uncle Shima from Gabz FM who all took time to entertain the guests. The event went as expected with guests caught up in dancing to the rhythm of the beat as songs played. But unlike in the past, there was low turnout.
In an interview with Arts & Culture one of the event organisers, Imani Archibald Seboni said very few people attended unlike the last event that was hosted
In fact, Seboni promised more and bigger ones to come. “The plan is to offer a variety of music genres at least every end of month or two but our main target is the elderly who from our observation are rarely catered for when it comes to entertainment,” Seboni said.
He said the location will remain Masa Hotel as they offer tight security, a warm atmosphere and great tasting food.
