Some of the biggest names from the world of jazz performed at the dedicated festival in Cape Town.

A collection of the world’s most popular jazz performers descended on Cape Town to perform in the city’s dedicated music festival.

The Cape Town 13th Jazz Festival saw some of Africa’s biggest jazz performers heading to the city to perform at the two-day event.

Growing in size each year, 34,000 people attended the event across the weekend of March 30th and 31st to see performances from the likes of motswako rapper Hip Hop Pantsula (HHP) and the award-winning singer Zamajobe.

HHP explained that while he is a hip hop performer, “jazz is the primary influence of hip hop”.

Leading international performers including Patti Austin and Lauren Hill also made the trip to the South African city to showcase their greatest hits and some new tunes.

Hill was announced as part of the line-up shortly after Jill Scott was forced to pull out from the event due to a conflicting schedule with a new film.
