Welcome to April, the month of Jazz!
Jazz is the mother of hip hop, the mother of soul, the mother of RnB…music borne from the thrones of oppression in African American communities in New Orleans and Louisiana that spread around the world!
Alliance Française Accra invites you to the Société Générale Ghana Jazz Festival, a weeklong celebration of Jazz in all its forms.
From workshops to art exhibitions and a three-day Jazz Concert.
It truly will be a celebration of intercultural dialogue, raising important discussions and just enjoying great Jazz!
