Every single time, the Kigali Jazz Junction never disappoints. It delivers hypnotic sets to sweat-drenched crowds of thousands who sing along, shake, vibrate, and dance their bodies into a new dimension. As the main area gets ever busier, you can see men and women with hair aimed to make fashion statements and people throwing themselves into the music with zero inhibitions.
Kigali Jazz Junction is another biggest musical event that proves that Kigali is a hub of music-lovers; that features an exciting and infectious mix of genres that has featured great names like South African singer named Zahara, Nigerian songbird Waje, John Drille, and the Congolese star, Awilo Longomba, among others. Artists from a multitude of countries; ranging from rising talents like Neptunez Bands, local Stars like Bruce Melody, DJ Marnaud, Nep DJs and international talents like Jidenna will be performing on the Kigali Jazz Junction stage.
Speaking of which; it’s been four years since Jidenna broke out in music and has gave us a reason to believe he can outlast the gimmicks and will now grace the stage on November 29th. His presence in Kigali Jazz Junction was announced after he recently tweeted applauding Rwanda for producing Africa’s first smartphones manufactured in Africa. Also, he recently put out a song called ‘Sufi Woman’ which is on his new Album ‘85toAfrica,’ and featured in the video is a Rwandan model called Uwanyuze Lilian.
The performance will take place at Kigali Conference & Exhibition Village known as Camp Kigali. The early bird tickets are available at Rwf 10,000 (ordinary), Rwf 20,000 (VIP), Rwf 25,000 (VVIP), and a table of 8 people for Rwf 200,000.
The tickets at the gate are sold at Rwf 15,000 (Ordinary), Rwf 25,000 (VIP), Rwf 30,000 (VVIP), and a table of 8 people for Rwf 240,000.
Kigali as a party town could do more with dope music events like Kigali Jazz Junction because everyone loves what real music does to them – serving as an escape from the real world.
