Africa’s grandest gathering hits Cape Town in March

31 January 2014 in General

HSM is proud to be associated with the Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF), undoubtedly the most antipicated musical showcase in South Africa and one of the world's greatest jazz festivals. This is the festival's 15th run Melodytrip ranked this proudly South African event as number four in the world, outshining events such as Switzerland's Montreaux Festival and the North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland.


The festival’s winning formula of bringing more than 40 international and local artists to perform over two days on five stages has earned it the status of being the most prestigious event on the African continent. This year, jazz lovers can expect the likes of Erykah Badu, Carmen Lundy and the Shane Cooper Quintet among a host of other stars.


HSM produces the official guide to the event, Who's Who, detailing the artist profiles, as well as information on the training and development programmes and other cultural showcases linked to the festival. The CTIJF takes place on 28–29 March at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
