Company: Standard Bank Jazz Festival
The Nairobi Horns Project brings together musicians bonded by a love of new music and committed to building a sound around horns in African and contemporary music.
What was conceived of as a three-member commercial for-hire horn section whose members worked on music TV shows, concerts, recordings and tours has since grown into a complete live act, inspired by jazz roots and blending Kenyan folk and pop influences, drawing an increasing and passionate audience.
Nairobi Horns has worked with musicians from the UK, Tanzania and South Africa, and on this occasion combines with a strong young rhythm section from Zimbabwe and South Africa. Finish off the Festival with a musical party!
