Cape Town International Jazz Festival 2014: Photos
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
The Mother City sure knows how to host Africa’s Grandest Gathering – this past weekend; the Cape Town International Convention Centre was buzzing with the sultry sounds of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival from Friday 28 to Saturday 29 March, 2014.
With a star-studded line-up that included global superstars including Erykah Badu, Abdullah Ibrahim, Lalah Hathaway, Shakatak and more as well as local artists Mi Casa, Jimmy Dludlu, Jimmy Nevis, Kyle Shepard and others, the Jazz Festival thoroughly entertained the more than 35 000 attendees.
While traffic as a result of the event certainly frustrated most of us, jazz fans flocked to the CTICC to see their idols perform live.
Here are a few social media images of the 2014 Cape Town International Jazz Festival:
