Festival de jazz de Harare

Harare Jazz Festival (Celebration Centre, 162 Swan Drive, Gun Hill, Harare) — this one-day festival is held in April (first launched in 2009). With major regional jazz artists like Hugh Masekela showing up, it has since gained a large following. Participants also take part in jazz workshops a day before the festival. All proceeds benefit a charity group, and as part of its community outreach program (as well as to encourage the music among the younger generations), the festival invites high school students to attend for free.
