The South African Association for Jazz Education (SAJE) Jazz Conference is back this year for the 14th time with an impressive line-up to wow all the jazz lovers.

The conference takes place from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 April and is the culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month (fondly known as Jam), which draws public attention to jazz and its extraordinary heritage throughout the month of April. The conference will be hosted by the South African College of Music at the University of Cape Town and SAJE.

SAJE is a section 21 non-profit organisation and has been, for the past 26 years, on a mission to ensure the growth of jazz in Southern Africa. The organisation aims to develop jazz and jazz education in urban and rural areas, to build the jazz arts community by advancing education and research, to promote skills development and performance, and to develop new audiences.

The biennial SAJE Jazz Conference is the only conference of its kind in Africa and offers a unique forum for musicians, educators, students, jazz fans, and those in the media and arts, to engage with the latest sounds and ideas in jazz. Along with paper presentations, workshops, performances and industry displays, there are opportunities for discussion, networking, information exchange and professional development. The theme for the 2018 conference is “The South African Sound in Jazz Today”.

This year the conference offers an impressive line-up of South African jazz educators and musicians – Mageshen Naidoo, Mike Rossi, Melanie Scholtz, Nduduzo Makhathini, Sibusiso Mashiloane, Alvin Dyers, Benjamin Jephta, Amanda Tiffin and Mandisi Dyantyi; arts journalists Gwen Ansell, Carol Martin and Nigel Vermaas; local jazz and jazz venue promoters, and master craftsman Johannes Gerber (handmade saxophone mouthpieces) among others.

The conference is open to everyone. Daily events run from 09:30 till late over the three days. Evening concerts will take place in the Chisholm Recital Room at the SA College of Music at UCT on Friday 27 April and Saturday 28 April. SAJE members receive a substantial discount.

On Sunday 29 April SAJE will present a concert at KwaSec in Gugulethu in conjunction with Jazz in the Native Yards and Concerts SA featuring Benjamin Jephta Elektrik. This performance will celebrate International Jazz Day (30 April) which brings together communities and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate and learn about jazz and its roots, future and impact, to raise awareness of the need for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding, and to reinforce international cooperation and communication. Each year on 30 April, this international art form is recognised for promoting peace, dialogue among cultures, diversity, and respect for human rights and human dignity; eradicating discrimination; promoting freedom of expression; fostering gender equality; and reinforcing the role of youth in enacting social change.VVisit the SAJE conference website www.sajejazzconference2018.weebly.com for more information.
